About the Author

Simon Armitage lives in Yorkshire, has taught at universities in this country and the United States, and is currently Professor of Poetry at the University of Sheffield. He has published nine full-length collections of poetry, including Selected Poems and Seeing Stars, as well as notable translations of medieval verse including Sir Gawain and the Green Knight. He has published two novels and three works of non-fiction; Walking Home - the prose account of his walk along the Pennine Way as a latter-day troubadour - was a Sunday Times bestseller. Armitage also writes extensively for radio, television and film, is a regular broadcaster and presenter with the BBC, is the lyricist and singer with the band the Scaremongers, and has written several theatre pieces including dramatisations of both the Odyssey and the Iliad. He is the recipient of numerous awards and prizes, most recently the Keats-Shelley Prize and the Cholmondeley Award, and in 2010 was honoured with the CBE for services to poetry.

As I live close to these stones, I thought it would be good to read about their origin and creation. The story is fine, but the print quality of the photos lets the book down. Given that these sculptures are "visual" this shortcoming is a pity. Hence the 3 stars.

I became aware of the Stanza Stones after watching an edition of BBC'S Countryfile and was intrigued to learn more. This book revealed the inspirational words of Simon Armitage along with the carving and planning by Pippa Hall,Tom Lonsdale and their team. The six stones are located in wonderful landscape in Yorkshire and this book as encouraged me to go and visit and maybe follow this interesting trail.

If you live in the Pennines, or are planning a visit, this book provides the perfect way to spend a few hours walking to find the stones. Each stone has one Simon's poems on it, and they perfectly fit into their surroundings. Our kids enjoy the fun of finding the stones. The book doesn't have maps, but there is a website where they can be downloaded for free.
