Ted Jenner's creative output tends to veer in two directions, the one derived from his Classical scholarship and the other from his interest in dissolving the distinctions between poetry and prose. What is also in evidence in this collection is an attempt to convey the essence of a landscape and our place within it combined with a glance or two at human relationships from unfamiliar perspectives."It is a labyrinthine house of language with many rooms that Jenner inhabits and what he finds there is never less than (ordinarily) surprising and provocative." Michael Harlow, Landfall 219. "Ted Jenner should be read for his erudition, his wit, his remarkable attention to detail, and his insistence on remaining continually open to the richness and flux of the world." --Scott Hamilton, Reading the Maps (blog) 2009. Born and educated in Dunedin, New Zealand, Ted Jenner now lives in Auckland, having taught in the UK and travelled extensively in Europe and the Middle East. More recently he lectured in Classics at the University of Malawi in Africa for seven years. Recent publications include "Gold Leaves", an account of the so-called 'Orphic' Gold tablets, with translations from the Ancient Greek (Atuanui Press. 2014) & "Writers in Residence and Other Captive Fauna" (Titus Books, Auckland, 2009).
