It’s a pleasure to announce our newest weekly feature: Laura Peters’ series Portraits of Poets. Laura Peters’ world is both dark and whimsical, and her portraits reflect that vision of reality. The poets Peters paints are chosen in partnership with Molossus‘ editorial staff, selected for their personality, vision, and relevance. A new portrait will be posted each Friday.
You can read more about Peters on the Molossus Masthead. Her portraits are for sale.
Frank Kuppner by Laura Peters
Frank Kuppner is a Glaswegian poet who for many years has aspired of migrating to Edinburgh. Carcanet, his longtime publisher, has most recently published his work Arioflotga, previously featured on Molossus. Famously eclectic, Kuppner for many years sported the poetry world’s most impressive facial hair, second perhaps only to Czesław Miłosz’ eyebrows. His early collections include A Bad Day for the Sung Dynasty (1984) and The Intelligent Observation of Naked Women (1987), and he writes a sporadic column for PN Review.
