[Eric Langley works as a lecturer at UCL, publishing academic writing on Shakespeare and period conceptions of interiority: his first monograph Narcissism And Suicide in Shakespeare and his Contemporaries was published by Oxford University Press in 2009, and he is currently completing a second monograph on Shakespearean metaphors of contagion. His first poetry collection, Raking Light, was published by Carcanet in 2017 and was shortlisted for the Felix Dennis Prize for Best First Collection at that year's Forward Prizes. A pamphlet of sonnets, written in dialogue with Emily Critchley, is forthcoming from Crater Press.]
