Matthew Hall holds a PhD from the University of Western Australia and presently teaches in Melbourne, where he lives with his family. He has published extensively on British late-modern poetry and poetics, including on The English Intelligencer, J.H. Prynne and Andrea Brady. At present he is undertaking a research project on Lionel Fogarty, Australia’s preeminent Indigenous poet. His latest poetry collections include Royal Jelly (2012), Hyaline (2013) and False Fruits (2016). He is the Feature and Scholarly Editor at Cordite Poetry Review.
With Cambridge Scholars Publishing, Matthew authored his first monograph, On Violence in the Work of J.H. Prynne, which was hailed as a foundational study into British late-modernism and a crucial pathway into J.H. Prynne’s poetry—full of new insights, new inventions, and new critical understandings.
Matthew explains his reasons for publishing with Cambridge Scholars Publishing:
“I have a number of colleagues that published monographs or edited collections with Cambridge Scholars Publishing, and after talking with an editor about my project I took them up on the opportunity to publish with them.
“I found the organisation to be greatly supportive of early career researchers, nurturing in their commitments and open to establishing long-term relationships with scholars. The Marketing and Visual Departments were incredibly supportive of my involvement and offered a tremendous amount in return. The quality of the book is exceptional and the team was always accessible, responsive, and dynamic in every engagement with them.”
