'The oval window' by J.H. Prynne

Kerridge, R and Reeve, N.H, eds. (2018) 'The oval window' by J.H. Prynne. Bloodaxe, Newcastle-Upon-Tyne. (Forthcoming)


The poet gave the editors first use of his archive for this important long poem, which enabled them to produce the first fully annotated edition, revealing for the first time the varied sources of the quoted material that makes up the greater part of this work. A new essay by each of the editors accompanies the annotated text. Kerridge's essay, approximately 8,800 words in length, makes use of the newly available archive to present a new interpretation of the poem, a new account of the methods involved in its composition, and an analysis of ways of reading it.
