A Manner of Utterance offers a collection of responses to J H Prynne's poetry by his readers — not merely academics, but poets, composers, teachers and a painter (Ian Friend, one of whose works is featured on the cover). The contributors include Ian Brinton (also editor of the volume), David Caddy, Ian Friend, Richard Humphreys, Li Zhi-min, Rod Mengham, Keston Sutherland, John Douglas Templeton, Erik Ulman. The contributions cover various aspects of Prynne's work, including essays by composers John Douglas Templeton and Erik Ulman, who discuss their work with Prynne's texts, an interview with English painter Ian Friend and Richard Humphreys discussing the ongoing influence of Prynne's texts on Friend's work, together with other essays interpreting the work of a writer whom many consider to be one of the finest living poets in the English language. Peter Ackroyd writing in The Times said that Prynne is "without doubt the most formidable and accomplished poet in England today, a writer who has single-handedly changed the vocabulary of expression".
