Chris McCully


Wild trout ­Well, it's usually been fun but after fifteen years this website is going to go off-line in autumn (October) 2020. Many thanks to those who have read and taken an interest. You'll encounter listings of and some links to Chris's work in the following pages. There is more work to come - several book-length projects have been completed in 2020 - but after October you'll find the new stuff in different fora and contexts. Thanks again.

All Chris's books - a chronological list

"Another recent Fyfield book is Chris McCully's versions of Old English poetry. McCully has combined the acuity of the scholar and the talents of a poet to produce a muscular set of translations which get as close to the sheer physicality of Old English poetry and the life portrayed there as may be possible. His Introduction is compelling: it is scholarly without being inaccessible, in tone lively and personal. He declares 'In the end I have merely tried to make the poems as attractive to readers as they are to me.' In this he surely succeeds." - (about Old English Poems and Riddles); Matt Simpson, 2008
