The Thing About Roy Fisher
John Kerrigan, Peter Robinson
Liverpool University Press

In this first chapter, John Kerrigan describes the documentary, Birmingham’s What I Think With (1991). Kerrigan places focus on Fisher’s discussion of Birmingham within this documentary, and includes a commentary on Fisher’s recollections on the ways in which the city has become a significant role in the shaping of his poetry. The chapter also more broadly considers Fisher’s interest in location in general and assesses the ways in which spatial awareness in his poetry results in the questioning of perceptual and psychological limits.
