Martin Anderson lived in the Far East for a great many years before moving back to the UK in 2001. His previous collections, all poetry, have appeared in both the UK and the USA. The late Gustaf Sobin, commenting upon such poetry, observed — 'Great purity and acuity, and a perfect ear. A wonderful poet.'

This prose sequence, The Hoplite Journals, the first volume of an ongoing project of the same name, is characterised by rapid temporal and spatial shifts amidst observed and imagined realities. It returns again and again, however, to meditate upon notions of identity and of memory, of time and of space.
