Product description

Synopsis

"The Pleasure Steamers" is Andrew Motion's first collection of poems. Formally adventurous, in the way his work has continued to be, the collection explores relationships, geographies and the legacy of the past to the present. Long sequences such as "Inland" and "Anniversaries" are interspersed with short, sharp lyrics which display the control, flare and delicacy which are the hallmarks of the Poet Laureate.

About the Author

ANDREW MOTION was born in 1952. Educated at University College, Oxford, he has taught at various universities including Hull, where he met Philip Larkin, later the subject of his prize-winning biography. He is now Professor of Creative Writing at the University of East Anglia, biographer, poet, critic and Poet Laureate.
