The Thing About Roy Fisher

Ralph Pite

Liverpool University Press

Chapter ten, written by Ralph Pite, provides an analysis and comparison of Fisher’s A Furnace and John Cowper Powys’s A Glastonbury Romance. The chapter outlines Powys’s use of poetic imagination as a tool to recognise the real nature of the universe, and attributes this belief system to the themes underlying and informing Fisher’s poetry. While the chapter focuses on Fisher’s ideas that are similar to Powys’s, it also dedicates equal time to describing the stark contrast between the works of the two poets.
