The Thing About Roy Fisher

Clair Wills

Liverpool University Press

Chapter eleven, written by Clair Wills, provides a close reading of Fisher’s A Furnace. In this chapter, Wills unpacks the poem’s most significant recurring motifs, including the mention of ghosts, politics, memory and immortality. She also focuses closely on the attention Fisher places on the burial of the dead, and analyses the poem’s portrayal of both religious and literary boundaries.
