Works about this Work

"Infinite Shall Never Meet" : Perspective in Martin Johnston's "In the Refectory of the Ognissanti" John Hawke , 2018 single work criticism
— Appears in: JASAL , vol. 2 no. 18 2018;

'Martin Johnston's late poem,"In the Refectory of the Ognissanti", is considered in particular relation to Yves Bonnefoy's conception of perspective in The Arriere-pays (2012) and related essays, and in the light of Modernist re-evaluations of perspective in non-Euclidean geometry. The elegaic concerns of the work are foregrounded in relation to Christopher Pollnitz's characterisation of Johnston as a "new Mannerist" poet, with the poem distinguished from apparently similar postmodern poems in this style, such as those of John Ashbery.' (Publication abstract)
