The Life and Work of Adelaide Practor: poetry and fathers (Ashgate, 1998)

Gill Gregory received a BA (Hons) in English from Southampton University and was awarded a PhD at London University for research into Adelaide Proctor, a mid-nineteenth century poet and philanthropist. Gill Gregory’s essays and reviews have been published in the Times Literary Supplement and Women: a Cultural Review (Oxford University Press). Her novel, The Sound of Turquoise, was published after winning a competition and draws on Gill Gregory’s Russian ancestry, her grandfather fled Tashkent in 1904, and the émigré experience in London in the early 20th century. She works at the University of Notre Dame in London.

“Gill Gregory’s first collection is luminous and suggestive. If these subtle, intelligent and sensory poems have a seductive quality, they are equally poems tempered by a strong awareness of people, and the world, and of histories that are both owned and imagined. They are poems that surprise and resonate.” Deryn Rees-Jones
