James Fenton is one of our most gifted poets and has given us some of the most memorable lyric verse of the past few decades. From the formal skill that marked his d├ębut, Terminal Moraine, to the dramatic and political monologues of The Memory War and Children in Exile, through to the unforgettable love poems of Out of Danger, James Fenton has proved himself to not only be “a brilliant poet of technical virtuosity” (Stephen Spender) but also one of our wittiest writers.
