Peter Hughes is a poet and founding editor of Oystercatcher Press. His Selected Poems came out from Shearsman in 2013, who also publish a critical volume on his varied work. His versions of the complete sonnets of Petrarch, Quite Frankly, were published by Reality Street in 2015 to great acclaim. These versions of the famous sonnets are often hilarious takes on modern life through the maudlin eyes of the first sonneteer imploring his ‘Laura’ to love him. The first half of his Cavalcanty project is available from Equipage.
