Peter Porter

Peter Porter arrived in Britain fifty years ago and has lived here ever since. Since 1974, he has visited his native Australia often and considers himself part of the present-day poetical worlds of both nations. Since 1968 he has been a freelance literary journalist and reviewer. He has published sixteen books of poems, plus four further volumes with the Australian painter, Arthur Boyd. He has been married twice and has, with his second wife, nine grandchildren.
