Christopher Logue – occasionally "Homer" Logue in recognition of his remarkable versions of the Iliad – first made his mark in the late 1950s. He invented the poster-poem and recorded Red Bird, the most successful British jazz/poetry disc, wrote lyrics for the singer Annie Ross at the Establishment Club and two scripts for the director Lindsay Anderson at the Royal Court Theatre. For Private Eye he edited "True Stories", which ran almost continuously for 30 years, and "Pseuds Corner". He also wrote the script for Ken Russell's Savage Messiah and acted in two of his films (including Cardinal Richelieu in The Devils).

This is not a conventional work of criticism and is all the better for it. Indeed, so far does it depart from the norms of academia that at times it is unclear whether Paterson is writing about Shakespeare or Shakespeare about Don Paterson. As the introduction declares, "reading a Shakespeare sonnet is an act of authorship".

In his introduction to this anthology of British landscape poetry, Owen Sheers imagines the book as a "conversation" between poets of different eras. His inclusions are solidly predictable, but the juxtapositions are shrewdly done, setting up a kind of call-and-response effect across the ages. Wordsworth's "Composed Upon Westminster Bridge" ("Dull would he be of soul who could pass by/ A sight so touching in its majesty") is placed next to Alice Oswald's "Another Westminster Bridge" (in which "a million shut-away eyes glance once/ restlessly at the river's ruts and glints" and then "wander swiftly away"), so the reader can compare contemplative romantic and restless modern.
