A breath of Fresh Air.,
This review is from: The Dead Sea Poems (Paperback)
I studied this book for English AS Level. Most of the texts we recieved during the year were dissapointing and i began to loathe the authors we had to study. Thankfully Simon Armitage was a complete breath of fresh air.
The first poem we read and deconstructed was 'I Say I Say I Say' which is moving and loaded with emotion.
Armitage has an interesting and personal style of writing that sets him apart from his modern contenders.
Since i read this book, Armitage has become without a doubt my favourite poet.
I strongly recommend this book to all with an interest in contemporary poetry.
