The unaccompanied
Armitage, Simon, 1963-2018
Articles
Praised for his powerfully inventive, influential verse, Simon Armitage has resided at the heart of British poetry for more than a quarter century. Throughout, his work has celebrated range and adaptability, most recently in the prose poems of 'Seeing Stars' (2010), the dramatisation of 'The Last Days of Troy' (2014) and the translation of medieval 'Pearl' (2016). But 'The Unaccompanied', his eleventh single volume, is a return to Armitage's trademark contemporary lyricism. Warm, knowing, generous, and moving, the poems in this new collection combine wit and mischief with heart-stopping honesty, and mark out 'The Unaccompanied' as a major publication by a writer the Observer has described as 'the best poet of his generation.'
