Robert Wells was born in Oxford in 1947. He has worked as a woodman, a teacher and in publishing. His Collected Poems and Translations (Carcanet Press) appeared in 2009.

‘...quietly determined and original...for more than 30 years he has pursued the question of landscape, how it might be lived in and worked in, recorded and celebrated.’
- Charles Bainbridge, The Guardian.

‘Wells inherits a faith in a poem as a thing in itself, that has value in a real world as well as an idyllic one’
- Tom Payne, Times Literary Supplement.

This pamphlet contains fifteen new poems. From the coins of Greek antiquity to a group of young folk with a laptop via the Mediterranean and Exmoor, the poet gives us objects, lives and places of interest: occasions of insight into the partly chosen, partly given, worlds of his and others’ energetic existences. The poems in A Last Look are artefacts made with loving exactitude in the personal workshop of memory.

Robert Wells was born in Oxford in 1947. He was educated at King's College, Cambridge, and has worked as a woodman, a teacher and in publishing. He lives in France.
