9780241974353: Collected Poems
Recensione:

A voracious appetite for language. Brilliant, passionate, outrageous, abrasive, but also, as in the family sonnets, immeasurably tender (Harold Pinter)

A pessimist with a relish for life . . . whose work insists that it is speech rather than page-bound silence (Sean O'Brien Oxford Companion to Twentieth-Century Poetry)

Tony Harrison writes in a style I have all my life been waiting for; combining the uninhibitedly vernacular with a line as taut and astringent as Racine's (Stephen Spender Observer)

The poem "v." is the most outstanding social poem of the last twenty-five years. Seldom has a British poem of such personal intensity had such universal range (Martin Booth)

The war poems are important and moving, obviously, but his personal writing made me wipe away surreptitious tears (Alison Flood)

Tony Harrison is a superbly accessible and talented poet ( Time Out)

Whatever note Harrison strikes, be it melancholy regret or boisterous high spirits, the youthful energy to be found in his verse marks him out as a towering figure in poetry ( Glasgow Herald)

Scatological satire suits him as much as political wit or meditation. World-wide in its topography, powerful in its effects . . . stunning! (Douglas Dunn)

One of the few truly great poets writing in English. His range is exhilarating, his clarity and technical mastery a sharp pleasure (Melvyn Bragg)

Some of the most important poems of the present day ( Poetry Review)

More than any other English poet I have read in recent years, Harrison makes good Camus' claim that the function of art is 'to open the prisons and give a voice to the sorrows and joys of all (John Lucas New Statesman)
