Celebrated as a poet, novelist and non-fiction writer and the winner of numerous leading literary prizes including the Whitbread Poetry Prize, the T.S. Eliot Prize and the James Tait Black Memorial Prize, John Burnside is one of Britain's leading contemporary writers. John Burnside: Contemporary Critical Perspectives brings together leading scholars of contemporary poetry and literature to guide readers through the full range of the author's writings, from his poetry to his autobiographical and nature writing. The book explores the major themes of Burnside's work, including the environment and the natural world, hauntings and his intertextual engagement with philosophy, music and the visual arts. Including a timeline of Burnside's life and times and an interview with the writer himself, this is the first authoritative guide to this major contemporary writer.
