Introduction My debut full-length poetry collection, ‘The Fetch’, was published by Nine Arches Press in October 2016. A pamphlet of poems, ‘The Body in the Well’, was published by HappenStance in 2007, and my work has appeared in The Poetry Review, Poetry London, The Rialto, Magma, The North, Agenda and elsewhere, including several anthologies. My book on Coleridge’s poetry, philosophy and the transnatural, ‘Coleridge and the Daemonic Imagination’ (Palgrave Macmillan, 2011) won the University English Book Prize 2012.
