Simon Armitage: The Unaccompanied

Wed 26th April 2017
6.00pm - 7.00pm
Stratford Artshouse

The multi-award winning poet presents his eleventh volume which documents a world on the brink, a world of unreliable seasons and unstable coordinates, where Odysseus stalks the aisles of cut-price supermarkets in search of direction, where the star of Bethlehem rises over industrial Yorkshire, and where alarm bells for ailing communities go unheeded or unheard.

‘The best poet of his generation.’ Craig Raine, The Observer
