Quote of the Day
I'm filled with admiration for what you've achieved, and particularly for the hard work and the 'cottage industry' aspect of it.

  • About
  • Ian Brinton studied at Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge, before going on to a career in English teaching. He was Head of English at Leeds Grammar School, Sevenoaks School and Dulwich College before retiring in 2009. He was an editor of The Use of English from 2003 to 2011. Ian Brinton has written books on Dickens and Emily Bronte, and is the author of Contemporary Poetry Since 1990 (Cambridge University Press, 2009) and the editor of A Manner of Utterance: The Poetry of J.H. Prynne (Shearsman, 2009).

    After nearly forty years of school-teaching Ian Brinton now writes full-time. His recent publications include translations from the French of Yves Bonnefoy and Francis Ponge; a new chapbook of translations from the French of Philippe Jaccottet is to appear from Oystercatcher Press. As a literary critic he has edited three books of the work of Andrew Crozier, and two books about the poet J.H. Prynne including For the Future, a festschrift for the poet’s eightieth birthday. Infinite Riches, a history of poets from Dulwich College since 1950, was published recently and his edition of the Selected Poems & Prose of John Riley is due to appear in November. He co-edits Tears in the Fence and SNOW and is on the committee setting up the new archive of Contemporary Poetry at Cambridge University Library.
