Christened a pioneer of socety's more forgotten characters, Fanthorpe was a poet who paved the way for other female writers such as Carol Ann Duffy who would refer to Fanthorpe as a 'mother' in her elegy. Fanthorpe named this signed collection of poems after the precarious position of a soldier in the trenches to whom she felt an emotive parallel, "I feel as if I am a forward zone or a trench. I am a lay person in a professional world".
