U.A. Fanthorpe was that rarest of beings: a poet who was hugely popular with the general public at the same time as being very seriously regarded by fellow poets and literary critics for her originality, wit and humanity. Since Fanthorpe's death, much of her work has been out of print, and this welcome New and Collected Poems makes available her own selection from over 25 years of distinctive and accessible writing, together with a substantial section of unpublished poems. This definitive volume will delight all her existing fans as well as those who come to her poems for the first time

Berowne's book by U. A Fanthorpe( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Berownes Book was written by U.A. Fanthorpe before she began to write the poetry that was to make her reputation as one of Englands most popular contemporary poets. "In 1974, having found that the way to get a job was to conceal my qualifications," she wrote, "I contrived to be taken on as a clerk/receptionist in a small hospital." As a student at Oxford, shed formed a cheerful view of life in a hospital, but a neuro-psychiatric hospital provided very different experiences. "Poetry" she said, "struck during my first month behind the desk." With Berownes Book she had already written a witty commentary on what she saw around her as she typed. Her observations are accompanied here by some of her very earliest poems
