Synopses & Reviews
Out Late is Scupham's sixth collection of poems. It has at its center a sequence of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream. The essential elements of the play--night, violence, identity, and transformation--provide many of the themes of the book, which closes on a lighter note with a set of parodies and pastiches. "Scupham ranks among the most arresting of newer English poets."--Spectator
