Peter Robinson was born in Salford, Lancashire, in 1953. He is Professor of English and American Literature at the University of Reading. Part of his doctorate, written in the 1970s, was on Roy Fisher's poetry, and since then he has published a number of essays on and reviews of the poet's work, as well as co-editing News For the Ear: A Homage to Roy Fisher with Robert Sheppard and The Thing About Roy Fisher: Criticial Studies with John Kerrigan, both of which appeared in 2000.
