  • Lucy Newlyn was born in Uganda and grew up in Leeds. She read English at Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford, where she also studied for her D. Phil, going on to become Lecturer then Tutorial Fellow at St Edmund Hall, Oxford. She taught English at St Edmund Hall for thirty-two years, published widely on English Romantic poetry, became a Professor in 2005 and retired in 2016. In addition to four books with Oxford University Press and (as editor) The Cambridge Companion to Coleridge, she has published two collections of poetry: Ginnel (Oxford Poets, Carcanet, 2005) and Earth's Almanac (Enitharmon, 2015). Newlyn’s literary biography, William and Dorothy Wordsworth ‘All in Each Other’ (OUP, 2013) was chosen as a TLS Book of the Year. Her memoir Diary of a Bipolar Explorer was published in 2018 with Signal, and her book The Craft of Poetry (written entirely in verse) is forthcoming with Yale University Press. She now lives and writes in Cornwall.
    Praise for Lucy Newlyn 'The lives and the landscapes flash before us like vivid slides in a continuous poetic magic-lantern show.'
    Richard Holmes
