The Thing About Roy Fisher

Simon Jarvis

Liverpool University Press

Chapter seven, written by Simon Jarvis, explores the nature and consequences of blockage in Fisher’s work, mainly concentrating on the titles The Cut Pages, Interiors with Various Figures, and Ceremonial Poems. The chapter focuses on the period immediately before and after the writer’s block Fisher experienced in the late 1960s, and examines his attempts to dissolve the block. In Jarvis’s analysis, he brings into focus Fisher’s avoidance of concept, copula and cognition, as well as outlining the difference between a ‘block’ in both literary terms and also in personal and societal terms.
