His forthcoming book, Lyric in its Times: Temporalities in Verse, Breath and Stone, explores these concerns in relation to verse from Petrarch to Cody-Rose Clevidence, and visual art from Veronese to Ian Hamilton Finlay. A new collection of poetry, My Reef My Manifest Array, will be published in early 2019. Wilkinson is a Professor in the Department of English Language and Literature and Director of Creative Writing.
