The barbarities of the twentieth century haunt the shadows- there is comfort in the graces of domestic life, in friendships and long memories, in cats and gardens and eccentricities.

A sequence of poems honours the life of a scholarly father-in-law who fought in the Great War. In a parallel autobiographical sequence, Playtime in a Cold City, three undergraduate years in the 1950s become a touchstone for a lost pastoral, before the fields of youth fade to memory, the lit faces of dead friends, / laughing.Generous, witty and shrewd, Borrowed Landscapes affirms Scuphams belief that when a murderous crew of sorcerers apprentices turn is to was, there is only a pen to turn was to is.
