Synopsis

"The Maze" is an imaginative excursion into poetic landscape, involving calls on Alexander Pope (whose gardener becomes the poet's guide), Dr Johnson, Wordsworth, Blake, Keats and Ezra Pound. It runs to 644 lines and is written in terza rima. It is light-hearted with many amusing moments, but has a serious underlying aim - to discuss the nature of poetry and help clear the poet's mind about the kind of poetry he wishes to write. This he does through a series of exchanges with Pope and the others.
