Between 1979 and 1998 William Scammell published nine books of poetry, edited several anthologies as well as a collection of Ted Hughes's prose, Winter Pollen, and wrote a critical study of Keith Douglas.

In 2000 he began compiling a collection of new poems for Flambard, but did not complete this before his unexpected and premature death.

Black and White is divided into two sections. The first consists of poems he listed for definite inclusion, and these show him at the height of his powers, consolidating the poetic gains evident throughout All Set to Fall Off the Edge of the World (1998). The second section contains most of the poems in the files he was working on during his final year.
