Glyn Maxwell
Maxwell's parents were Welsh (his mother acted in the premiere of Dylan Thomas's Under Milk Wood both in the West End and on Broadway) but he was born and grew up in Welwyn Garden City in Hertfordshire. He studied English at Worcester College, Oxford. He began an MLitt there, but in 1987 moved to America to study poetry and drama with Derek Walcott at Boston University. His three earliest collections of poetry, Tale Of The Mayor's Son (1990), Out of the Rain (1992), Rest For The Wicked (1995) are collected as The Boys at Twilight: Poems 1990-1995 (2000). In 1994 he was named one of the New Generation poets and he received the E. M. Forster Award in 1997. His book Time's Fool (2000) is a narrative poem written in terza rima. His most recent collections are The Nerve (2002) and The Sugar Mile (2005).
