The Mask' is a book of imitations, impersonations and inhabitations exploring the notion of identity and persona. The poet wears the mask in order to explore the voices of a range of poets and historical characters including: Thomas Hardy, Alice Oswald, Glenn Ford, Jack The Ripper, William of Ockham.
Peter Riley in The Fortnightly Review wrote of 'The Mask'...
'The book confirms the virtuosic, lively manner: serious/comical, explicit/enigmatic, direct/ironical, streetwise/scholarly, sometimes all of these at the same time and above all, unpredictable.'
