Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Bill Griffiths's mix of street-wise academia and boundary dancing poetry have engaged audiences now for at least four decades. He possesses that ability to mix chance with intent, history with fiction and irreverent music with non-received pronunciation in order to deliver what has become one of the most consistently creative bodies of poetic writing made during the past century. That his name does not yet trip off the tongue of mainstream poetry buyers is something that should be swiftly corrected. To know where we are with our verse in the UK an understanding of Griffiths is essential. Codice inventario libreria
Riassunto: This is a collection of essays about, and interviews with, the contemporary British poet, Bill Griffiths. His poetry, written over four decades, is wide-ranging in tone, subject, practice and effect, dealing with anything from London, prison, hospital, colonial history, boats, cartoons, old English and dialect poetry, or the classics. Griffiths has long been celebrated as a leading figure of the British Poetry Revival, yet this is to underestimate the continuing impact of this exciting and accessible writer. These essays aim to help ordinary readers and students gain insight into Griffiths's astonishing jewel-like lyrics and to re-situate him in the mainstream of British poetry.
