Cliff Fell is a London-born poet, essayist, musician and book reviewer who settled in New Zealand in 1998. His two collections of poems are The Adulterer’s Bible (Victoria University Press, 2003) and Beauty of the Badlands (Victoria University Press, 2008). The first was awarded the Adam Prize and the Jessie Mackay Prize for Poetry. In this interview he discusses the two poems that appear in Griffith REVIEW 43.



You have two poems published in this edition of Griffith REVIEW, and I’m interested in where the ideas for each of them first came from.
