Matthew Mead began publishing his poetry in the 1960s. By then he had, as Peter Riley noted, located a sense of poetry for which he drew widely from Anglo-American writing, avoiding any programmes of allegiance.’ Over the years he has published five collections of poetry. As he once wrote, I have tried not to avoid what has happened in poetry and psycho-politics during this [20th] century.’ In his essay which is appended to this collection, Dick Davis analyses the special and uncommon qualities of Mead’s poetry, concluding His tone is unmistakable, and once encountered it is never forgotten.’ Matthew Mead was born in Buckinghamshire in 1924. He served in the British Army from 1942 to 1947 and since 1962 he has lived in Germany. Word for Word (Anvil, 2008) is a selection of the German poetry translations he has made with his wife Ruth, including such poets as Horst Bienek, Johannes Bobrowski and Heinz Winfried Sabais.

About the Author:

Matthew Mead was born in 1924. He served in the British army from 1942 to 1947, including three years in India, Sri Lanka and Singapore. He has lived in Germany since 1962 and with his German wife Ruth has translated many German poets. He featured in the Penguin Modern Poets series in 1970. He has published five collections of poetry. Dick Davis was born in 1945. He teaches Persian at Ohio State University; as well as his collections of his own poetry, Davis has published a number of translations from the Persian.

Review:

'Mead combines in a unique way the tradition of experimental form and European political themes. His voice is original and genuine and his poems speak soberly of the essential things of our time.' - Christopher Middleton (1967)'If people think they know a richer, more judicious and more generous poetry than [Matthew Mead's] in his generation, I'd be very interested to know where it is.' - Peter Riley (2006)
