We Look Like This anatomizes how history, violence, power, lust and mortality at work on us. Burt's formal, muscular language evokes war, want, cruelty and hope, and a childhood among tough Jews in Philadelphia, dominated by his father Joe, son of Ukrainian immigrants, butcher, boxer and, last, coastal fisherman.


Dan Burt was born in South Philadelphia in 1942. He attended state schools and a local Catholic college before reading English at St John's College, Cambridge. After graduating from Yale Law School he practised law in the United States, Saudi Arabia and Britain before moving to London in 1994 and becoming a British citizen. He is an Honorary Fellow of St John's College and lives and writes in London and Cambridge. His poetry publications include the pamphlets Searched For Text (2008) and Certain Windows (2011), and Cold Eye, a collaboration with the artist Paul Hodgson (2010), all published by Carcanet Press in the Lintott Press imprint. His poetry was included in Carcanet's New Poetries V anthology and has been published in periodicals including the TLS, Poetry Review, The New Statesman, Financial Times and PN Review.
