Product description


‘A sparklingly perceptive, intellectually lively, delightfully quirky and, above all, profoundly personal portrait of recent literary history’ The Times

‘The tone is by turns sheepish, apologetic, hesitant, and even mildly cantankerous. In short, this book contains some of the best and most engagingly human prose about the agonies and travails of writing poems that I have read in a long time’ Financial Times

Book Description

A unique collection of essays about modern British poets in their own words.
