Jeremy Hooker

Jeremy Hooker grew up in Warsash near Southampton and at Pennington, on the edge of the New Forest, and the landscapes of this region have remained an important source of inspiration. Many of his poems were written in Wales, where he has lived for long periods. His academic career has taken him to universities in England, the Netherlands, and the USA. He is now Emeritus Professor of the University of South Wales. Besides his eleven collections of poetry represented in The Cut of the Light (Enitharmon, 2006), Jeremy is well known as a critic and has published selections of writings by Edward Thomas and Richard Jefferies, and studies of David Jones and John Cowper Powys, all of them important to his own creative life. Other critical titles include Writers in a Landscape (University of Wales Press, 1996) and Imagining Wales (University of Wales Press, 2001), while Welsh Journal (Seren, 2001) records his life in Wales during the 1970s, and Upstate (Shearsman, 2007) a period in upstate New York. His features for BBC Radio 3 include A Map of David Jones. Jeremy’s most recent books are Diary of a Stroke (Shearsman, 2016) and two new collections of poems, Scattered Light (Enitharmon, 2015) and Ancestral Light (Shearsman, 2016). He is a Fellow of the Welsh Academy and a Fellow of the Learned Society of Wales.
