Dramatic monologues, elegies, poems of social and political observations, love lyrics -- all are part of Andrew Motion's repertoire. His concern for the extremes of human experience and the artistic integrity that insists on his addressing the reader with a maximum clarity and impact are consistent features of a career otherwise remarkable for its imaginative range and technical versatility.
Andrew Motion's position as a poet in the great English narrative tradition, and his distinctive contribution to it, have long been recognized. His uncanny ability to enter into the lives and minds of imaginary characters at moments of physical and emotional danger are here on display in a collection that confirms him as one of the most important poets at work today.
