Great Regulars: Wedgwood Clarke, whose chapbook,

Sea Swim, was published earlier this year, is currently resident at the Centre for Environmental and Marine Science at the Scarborough campus of the University of Hull. "Starfish" is from a collection-in-progress, Aristotle's Lantern, reflecting the poet's fascination with aquatic zoology, and his interest in imaginative connections between the humanities and sciences.

This interest is evident in the combination of images in the poem.

from Carol Rumens: The Guardian: Poem of the week: Starfish by John Wedgwood Clarke
