The Thing About Roy Fisher

Marjorie Perloff

Liverpool University Press

Chapter six, written by Marjorie Perloff, focuses on the patterns in language, form and structure found in Fisher’s The Cut Pages. Perloff describes the uniqueness of the collection and defines its status as ahead of its time within both the American and British poetry sphere. Perloff additionally points out the potential insularity of Fisher’s poetry and outlines the difficulties he faced when attempting to bring in an American audience. The chapter also comments on Fisher’s prose and makes comparison to the American poet, William Carlos Williams.
