The Thing About Roy Fisher

James Keery

Liverpool University Press

In this second chapter, James Keery closely reads Fisher’s early poetry from the 1950s. In his analysis, Keery explores the poetry’s historical context and interrelations, in order to develop a well-rounded perspective on the period. While the chapter focuses mainly on work produced in the 1950s, Keery also discusses later poems written by Fisher that adopt the themes previously established in the 1950s.
