Poet Laureate Simon Armitage appears at the 2019 Edinburgh International Book Festival.
The popular poetry professor and Yorkshireman has been given Britain’s highest literary honour and made the UK’s Poet Laureate. Today, Simon Armitage looks at the many poems he’s written for standalone projects, commissions and collaborations, newly collected in Sandettie Light Vessel Automatic. Listen as the former probation officer who describes his writing as ‘no-brow’ explores the links between works covering everything from sculpture to travel and drama to the environment.
