Simon Armitage - Magnetic Field Readings with the Poet Laureate
We are so pleased to welcome back the Poet Laureate, playwright and novelist. Simon will be reading from his new collection, Magnetic Field, as well as some of his latest work. Growing up in Marsden among the hills of West Yorkshire, he has always associated his early poetic experiences with the night-time view from his bedroom window, those 'private, moonstruck observations' and the clockwork comings and goings in the village providing rich subject matter for his first poems. Decades on, that window continues to operate as both framework and focal point for the writing, and the poems offer a personal insight into a preoccupation that shows no signs of fading and explores our attachment to certain places and the forces they exert.
