Peter Robinson

Peter Robinson was born in 1953 in the North of England. Since 1989 he has taught English Literature in Japan, at present in Kyoto, where he lives with his wife and their two daughters.

“Robinson is technically adept… his sound patterning binds the poems, but unobtrusively, while his sense of rhythm controls perceptions, and paces and spaces them out with uncanny skill. His language is always precise, and maintains that position in the service of the vaguest and most fleeting sensations… Robinson is an original poet.”

Patrick McGuinness, Poetry Revue

“To read Peter Robinson attentively is to gain an exact and exacting sense of what the world is now.”

James Sutherland Smith, P. N. Review

“We need this kind of poetry.”

Kate Price, The Reader
