"'Queueing for the Sun in Walbrook', the title poem of this, U.A. Fanthorpe's eighth collection, encapsulates many of the preoccupations that have marked her work over the years - including a love of the past, and ways of bringing it to life; and an awareness of the acts of rescue that, against the odds, have gone to save learning, buildings, people and language."--BOOK JACKET

"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her own selection from over 25 years of distinctive and accessible writing, together with a substantial section of unpublished poems."--Publisher description

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

5 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 39 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
