poet lyricist librarian

This is the site of the poet Richard Price. As well as writing poetry and fiction he is Head of Contemporary British Collections at the British Library and he teaches at the Poetry School. His poetry includes the award-winning Small World, while a selection of his essays on poetry, underground presses, and artist's books are collected in Is This A Poem?. He is the lyricist and lead vocalist for the band The Loss Adjustors, whose latest album is The World Brims.

"Richard Priceís poetry is inventive, sometimes dazzling, but never merely showy. I first came to Priceís poetry with the publication of Lucky Day (2005) and every subsequent book has delivered fresh weather. Moon for Sale appeared in January 2017, and Iím still rereading it and finding new pleasures. Price threads the political into the personal when he writes love poetry, and his intensely felt lyricism is sinewy with warning." -- Carol Rumens
