Synopsis

Threads of Iron is Duncan's lost debut volume: not because it was never published, but because it never appeared as intended. Instead, the original was split into two and was published in two parts by Reality Street (in 1991) and by Shearsman Books (in 2000). A further part of the manuscript was cut and became Sound Surface (see In Five Eyes, published simultaneously with this volume).

Andrew Duncan was born in 1956 and brought up in the Midlands. He worked as a labourer (in England and Germany) after leaving school, and subsequently as a project planner with a telecoms manufacturer (1978 - 87), and as a programmer for the Stock Exchange (1988 - 91). He now works in the Civil Service and is based in Nottingham. He has been publishing poetry since his Cambridge days in the late 70s, includingAnxiety Before Entering a Room, Sound Surface, Pauper Estate. He is one of the editors of Angel Exhaust and has translated a lot of modern German poetry. He has published a good deal of literary criticism in recent years, above all The Failure of Conservatism in Modern British Poetry (Salt); Centre and Periphery in Modern British Poetry (Liverpool UP), The Council of Heresy, and the Long 1950s (both from Shearsman).
