Alan Brownjohn was born in 1931. At Oxford his poet contemporaries included Anthony Thwaite, Geoffrey Hill, U. A. Fanthorpe, Adrian Mitchell and Jenny Joseph. Since publishing his first collection, The Railings (1961), he has been an admired and influential presence in English poetry. He is also a critic, teacher and promoter of poetry through such organisations as the Poetry Society, the Poetry Book Society and the Arvon Foundation, and in recent years has also produced translations of plays by Goethe and Corneille, and three novels, the latest being A Funny Old Year (2001). Enitharmon published The Men Around Her Bed in 2004 and his Collected Poems in 2006. His novel, Windows on the Moon is due to be published by Black Spring Press in the spring of 2009. Alan Brownjohn is a Distinguished Supporter of the British Humanist Association.

"As in Alan Brownjohn's last book, A Song of Good Life, a number of these poems tend towards the condition of fiction: mysterious events are touched on, elaborate situations hinted at, characters or aspects of character are seen glancingly or with concentrated moral scrutiny. There is no doubt that these are poems, and well made ones, with a wide and skilfully employed variety of rhythms and shapes. Whether nostalgic, disturbing, sardonic or more openly humorous, Alan Brownjohn has at his command a poetry which can move, or alarm, or simply entertain - in many different tones and several different voices."

'...a completely assured master of whatever form he adopts' - Peter Porter

'...a very sharp eye for observing life's ironies and the all-too-rare ability to hold the reader's interest.' - The Sunday Times
