Ignis is a man of tender feeling;
His love for me has been beyond all praise.
When he told me we would put to death a girl-child
We wept as one stricken parent.
Telethusa's Daughter (after Ovid)


Frances Nagle is a teacher and lives near Manchester. Her poems combine great energy and self-dsicipline. "Above all", wrote Carol Rumens, "she explores the drama of sexual relationships, sometimes taking an historical or mythological persona. She excells in the short dramatic lyric where she articulates an often angry, transgressive eroticism, and triumphantlyavoids the slackness and self-indulgence often associated with such poetry."
