First Sentence
It's not surprising that the Muse has had to bypass Laureate Hughes and chooses me to be the bard to hymn the close of this charade, and hymn the Crown's demise I will with this black goose-feather quill I've saved for ages just to write: Goodbye! Good riddance, Divine Right! and anything that still pretends divinity shapes human ends. Read the first page

Not his best work 22 Jun. 2004
By Tine Vedel Eriksen - Published on
Format: Paperback
Although I am generally a fan of Tony Harrison's work, I cannot bring myself to recommend this collection. Harrison's seems fed up with it all and has decided to reuse his old tricks which by this recycling loose their attraction. Read his Collected Poetry and discover how technically skilled and emotionally challenging his work can truely be. This is a waste of money unless you have a particular attraction to occasional verse.
