About the Author

Michael Nott is a postdoctoral fellow at University College Cork, Ireland.


Impressive in its scope and depth, Photopoetry, 1845-2015 is a landmark work. At once accessible and scholarly, this book will appeal to anyone with an interest in poetry, photography, and links between them. * Robert Crawford, Professor of Modern Scottish Literature and Bishop Wardlaw Professor of Poetry, University of St Andrews, UK *
Michael Nott offers the first ever extended history of photopoetry from its fascinating origins in Victorian photobooks and scrapbooks through to sophisticated 'symbiotic' productions by poets and photographers of the modern and contemporary periods. This ambitious study brings to light a range of little known photopoetic material. His astute theoretical discriminations among evolving collaborative productions by poets and photographers make a strong case for a genre that will excite scholars and creative practitioners alike. A work that makes an original contribution to the field of image/text studies. * David Kinloch, Professor of Poetry and Creative Writing, University of Strathclyde, UK *
