    The clarity and the fluid style with which this biography is written is admirable I am reminded of the expression deceptively simple in reference to Kurt Vonnegut s writing for instance This book is an invention in the sense that it invents the right amount of respect and ingenuity as it goes along The author knows how invaluable the life of a person is and approaches that knowledge in a very imaginative way I have rarely read a book about someone where I am left with such knowledge about The clarity and the fluid style with which this biography is written is admirable I am reminded of the expression deceptively simple in reference to Kurt Vonnegut s writing for instance This book is an invention in the sense that it invents the right amount of respect and ingenuity as it goes along The author knows how invaluable the life of a person is and approaches that knowledge in a very imaginative way I have rarely read a book about someone where I am left with such knowledge about the person but also with a huge mystery, the mystery of life itself The experience and the curiosity, the love and lust for living in so many ways that Peter Redgrove had, is transferred directly to me as a reader in such an absorbing way, I had the great feeling of not only reading but being read by the book What could be better than that

    An absolutely fascinating insight into a flawed genius Exposes the limitations of The Wise Wound and simultaneously upholds its importance as an inspired attempt to recast cultural myths in the forge of personal struggle We learn that Redgrove was understandably nervous through his life about his inner obsessions being brought to the public in a way that insensitively sullied his work This biography would have allayed all his fears Some of the subject s most precious and difficult secrets An absolutely fascinating insight into a flawed genius Exposes the limitations of The Wise Wound and simultaneously upholds its importance as an inspired attempt to recast cultural myths in the forge of personal struggle We learn that Redgrove was understandably nervous through his life about his inner obsessions being brought to the public in a way that insensitively sullied his work This biography would have allayed all his fears Some of the subject s most precious and difficult secrets are revealed, and we re left with an appreciation for the richness and strangeness of life that extends his poetic achievements, as well as a compassionate reminder of the intractable messiness that every human deals with

    Sadly and inequitably history won t remember Redgrove s oeuvre in the same way that Hughes work will be remembered but this biography puts Peter Redgrove s tortured life and poetry in the context of his time A fitting memorial and interpretation of his life.
