The Sun’s Fish Dreaming : The Poetry of Andrew Taylor
Duwell surveys the writing life of Andrew Taylor which, in his view, has so far only received fairly superficial and fragmented critical comment and ‘awaits a detailed examination’. In considering the different stages of Taylor’s development as a poet, Duwell’s aim is ‘to lay out the elements of that life and to suggest the parameters within which a more detailed discussion might take place’. He sees the overall image of Taylor’s poetry as ‘continuities inside radical changes of mode’ and argues that Taylor’s poetry is ‘generated out of … the dichotomy of absence and plenitude’ (312).
