By A Customer on 21 Oct. 2000
I've had this book for more than a year now, and despite having read every poem many times, this selection of Harrison's work has gained itself a distinguished place on the bedside table, and I still find myself dipping into it again and again to steal another dose of the pleasure. The poems are extremely accessible and the beauty of them lies in their simplicity. Harrison has the ability to portray the emotions and events of life in simple language yet with immeasurable clarity which one is immediately able to associate with. His poems wholly rely upon the response of the reader and this leads to the poems themselves being staggeringly simple but portraying things that could not be put into words on endless pages of prose.

This book fell into my lap very recently and I've already fallen in love with it. There is such a personal element to the peotry of his family - he defines his fathers character which makes me see what a man he was and also see such characteristics mirrored in my own father.

An excellent book, truely wonderful, I'm glad it's among my collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars Tony Harrison: A Modern British Poet 16 Jun. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
This collection of the work of Tony Harrison I found to be excellent. His accounts of his working-class background in Leeds, and his struggle to reconcile the conflicting worlds of his background and his present status as an acclaimed poet, constitutes the bulk of his work. He has a modern tone to his voice which speaks of universal themes of breaking away from one's past.
