Overview

The poems in Portrait of my Father in an English Landscape are about childhood, language, and growing up in a foreign country, England. George Szirtes writes particularly about his own father, captured in images, anecdotes, and sudden, vivid fragmentary stories. The bravura formal structure of these remarkable sequences continues Szirtes's tradition of writing long poem sequences, as well as linked sonnets, and contributes to his personal history of Europe.
