  • Author
  • Collected Poems covers some thirty years from 1972 until 2001. His individual collections have usually taken as their subject one predominant theme - the enigmas of prehistory, his wartime childhood, the passing of the Edwardian generation his parents belonged to.

    Peter Scupham was born in Liverpool in 1933. With John Mole he founded The Mandeville Press and now lectures, writes, and runs Mermaid Books, a second-hand book business in Norfolk.
