About the Author

U.A. Fanthorpe (1929-2009) was born in Kent and read English at St Anne's College, Oxford, before training as a teacher. She was Head of English at Cheltenham Ladies' College, and then 'became a middle-aged drop-out in order to write', publishing her first collection, Side Effects, in 1978. Her eight volumes of poetry were all published by Peterloo, and her Selected Poems was published by Penguin in 1986. Her 1995 collection Safe as Houses was included on the A-level syllabus. Enitharmon Press published her Christmas Poems (2002) and From Me to You (2007), love poems by Fanthorpe and R.V. Bailey. In 1994 U.A. Fanthorpe was the first woman to be nominated for the post of Oxford Professor of Poetry. She was made a CBE in 2001 and given the Queen's Gold Medal for Poetry in 2003, when her Collected Poems was published. Her New and Collected Poems (2010) and Berowne's Book (2015) were both published by Enitharmon. Her early, uncollected poems are now included in Beginner's Luck, edited by R.V. Bailey (Bloodaxe Books, 2019).
