The Thing About Roy Fisher

Liverpool University Press

In chapter four, Ian F. A. Bell and Meriel Lland discuss Fisher’s poetic practice, focusing in particular on the significance of his use of scepticism, subjectivism, and dissembling. The chapter also focuses on the ways in which Fisher’s poetry crosses borders and boundaries of all kinds and describes how the work of William James and Ezra Pound fit in relation to Fisher’s literature. The poems analysed in this chapter include ‘The Lesson in Composition’, ‘Of the Empirical Self and for Me’, ‘The Six Deliberate Acts’, and ‘Without Location’.
