In Five Eyes recovers two almost-lost collections of poems-Sound Surface & Surveillance and Compliance-published some 20 and 10 years ago, respectively, but which were written in the 1980s and early 1990s. Published originally in fugitive editions, these two collections fill out the picture of Duncan's earlier work. Sound Surface was part of the original Threads of Iron manuscript, the remainder of which is published simultaneously with this volume
Andrew Duncan was born in 1956 and brought up in the Midlands. He worked as a labourer (in England and Germany) after leaving school, and subsequently as a project planner with a telecoms manufacturer (1978 - 87), and as a programmer for the Stock Exchange (1988 - 91). He now works in the Civil Service and is based in Nottingham. He has been publishing poetry since his Cambridge days in the late 70s, including Anxiety Before Entering a Room, Sound Surface and Pauper Estate. He is one of the editors of Angel Exhaust and has translated a lot of modern German poetry. He has published a good deal of literary criticism in recent years, above all The Failure of Conservatism in Modern British Poetry (Salt); Centre and Periphery in Modern British Poetry (Liverpool UP), The Council of Heresy and The Long 1950s (both from Shearsman Books).
