  Sonnets - Fleur Adcock Friday 30 May 2003  
The poet Fleur Adcock came to this country from New Zealand in the 1960's, and much of her work uses the perspective of an ambivalent outsider.

Janet Todd, Professor of English at the University of Glasgow and Isobel Armstrong, Professor of English at Birbeck College, have been comparing notes on Fleur Adcock's Dreaming.
You can find Fleur Adcock's poem 'Dreaming', in 'The Oxford Book of Sonnets' edited by John Fuller, published by Oxford Paperbacks; ISBN: 0192803891.
