Phyllis Webb is a poet around whom archetypes tend to cluster: the reclusive artist; the distraught, borderline suicidal Sapphic woman poet. While on the surface she seems supremely disinterested in the public sphere, argues Stephen Collis in this celebration of her work, Webb is no domestic, as a creator or a critic. Her work sweeps across politics, philosophy, and economics.
