Thom Gunn (1929-2004) was educated at Cambridge University, and had his first collection of poems, "Fighting Terms", published while still an undergraduate. He moved to northern California in 1954 and taught in American universities until his death. His last collection was "Boss Cupid" (2000). In this series, a contemporary poet selects and introduces a poet of the past. By their choice of poems and by the personal and critical reactions they express in their prefaces, the editors offer insights into their own work as well as providing an accessible and passionate introduction to some of the greatest poets of our literature.
