Ian Pople recognises that the process of writing is, in its own terms, an actual act of creation. He examines how this act of creation crosses the boundaries between the real and the unreal, and how it is possible to make something that not only reflects life but also becomes part of the human condition. This sequence of poems is a gentle and understated questioning of one’s comprehension of the real world.

"Like Sean O'Brien, Pople often seems a poet of cumulative effect, rather than the isolated image. His images are normally simply-seen and unembellished, and when juxtaposed, can have surprising and illuminating effects."

Ian Pople was born in Ipswich. He was educated at the British Council, Athens and the Universities of Aston and Manchester. His first book of poetry, The Glass Enclosure (Arc, 1996), was a Poetry Book Society Recommendation and shortlisted for the Forward Prize for Best First Collection. His second collection, An Occasional Lean-to, was published by Arc in 2004. He teaches at the University of Manchester.
