Peter FINCH (Wales)

Peter Finch (1947, Cardiff, Wales) poet, writer, editor, performer. He started his creative literary and artistic activities in the midst 1960s. In the 1960s and 70s he was the editor and publisher of the literary magazine Second Aeon representing, alongside traditional forms, various trends of the international experimental poetry. At that time he made a number of poetic tours together with B. Cobbing. Perform-poetry occupied an important part in his creative literary activities in the 1980s, Finch was also one of the founders of the poetic group Cabaret 246 (Cardiff), and of the sound-poetic trio Horses Mouth. He is the author of more than thirty poetry books, among them are the following ones: Wanted For Writing Poetry (Second Aeon Ed., 1968), Beyond The Silence (Vertigo Ed., 1970), The Edge Of Tomorrow (BB Books Ed., 1971), Whitesung (Aquila Ed., 1972), Trowch Eich Radio mlaen (Writers Forum, 1977), Visual Texts 1970-1980 (Pyrofiche Ed., 1981), On Criticism (Writers Forum, 1984), Make (Galloping Dog, 1990), Five Hundred Cobbings (Writers Forum, 1994), Antibodies (Stride Ed., 1997) and others. Finchs numerous books always bring about conflicting reactions among critics and specialists in literature, sometimes making them come up with absolutely different assessments of his creative activities. Finch is so good because of his constant need to create and recreate, and his refusal to accept barriers... (I. Macmillan, Poetry Wales), ...challenging and perplexing but rarely boring... (J. W. Williams, Virtual Vagabond), ...strictly for addicts, masochists and freewheeling bohemians who like to shake a leg in suburbia (The Independent on Sunday). As an editor he prepared several editions for publication, including the following ones: Typewriters Poems (Something Else Press, 1971), How To Learn Welsh (Christopher Davies Ed., 1978), Small Presses & Little Magazine Of The UK & Ireland (Oriel Ed., 1996), he is also the editor of the poetry section in the literary annual edition Writers Handbook (Macmillan Ed.), and of the section of samizdat in the annual edition Writers & Artists Yearbook (A&C Black Ed.). Finch regularly publishes book reviews in various newspapers and magazines, he is in charge of the financial maters in the ALP (Association of Little Press), for more than twenty years he was a manager of the bookshop Oriel (Cardiff). He is the author of a great number of publications in various literary editions both at home and abroad. With support from the local authorities he regularly gives talks, holds workshops and seminars for the young on modern literature, little press and sound-poetry history. At present, Finch is head of the National Literary Agency, that was established under the aegis of the Wales Academy. The establishment of the new National Literature Agency under the banner of the Academy and under Peter Finchs leadership may well prove the essential turning point. (D. Clarke, The Gregynog Papers, IWA). Peter Finch lives and works in Cardiff (Wales).
