The Fonthill Poets cover The Fonthill Poets back

The Fonthill group of poets were active in the South East of England from the late seventies to the early nineties. Brought together by the inspirational poet and critic, Laurence Lerner, the Fonthill hosted some of the most distinctive and original voices in English poetry of the period, including Philip Gross, Eva Salzman and Don Paterson. Former members Martyn Ford and Stephen Plaice have edited the first ever selection of poems to be written for the group. Representing the work of fifteen of the Fonthill poets, it sheds light on a fascinating period of literary and social history.
