Robert Sheppard: New Links for the New Year

I have a new professional web page at Edge Hill University, complete with air-brushed photo so I look like a wax dummy of myself (appropriate for the self-repression in the service of the performance principle of paid employment, even of a professor;
http://www.edgehill.ac.uk/Faculties/HMSAS/English/CreativeWriting/Staff/RobertSheppard.htm

The page I originally wanted was deemed too long by the techie-police and is detailed and linked, but you can get it as a pdf through the page or here.

Parts of Risk Assessment a collaboration with Rupert Loydell, published by Damaged Goods, 2006, may be read at: http://www.greatworks.org.uk/poems/ra1.html

Finally, read Edmund Hardy’s interview with me may be found on Intercapillary Space at http://intercapillaryspace.blogspot.com/2006/06/signature-ethics.html. In it I talk about both the poetry and the criticism. Edmund’s review of The Lores may be read at Terrible Work:
www.terriblework.co.uk/the%20lores.htm

and his review of my critical book, The Poetry of Saying may be read at Terrible Work too. http://www.terriblework.co.uk/brit%20poetry%20discontents.htm

My review of Peter Barry’s Poetry Wars may be read on Jacket, complete with another strange photograph of me (in Riga) and its decidedly non-academic conclusion about the goings on at Earl’s Court in the 1970s and ‘those radical poets of the 1970s who – yes, I’ve got to say it – fucked it up for the rest of us.’: http://jacketmagazine.com/31/sheppard-barry.html
