About this title:

Synopsis:

As the title implies, Armitage's flesh-and-blood account of numerous personal journeys reads like a private encyclopaedia of emotion and health. Vivid and passionate, the poems range from the rain forests of South America to the deserts of Western Australia, but are set against that ultimate and most intimate of all landscapes, the human body. Equaliy, the body politic comes into question, through subtle enquiries into Englishness in all its guises.

About the Author: Simon Armitage was born in West Yorkshire and is Professor of Poetry at the University of Sheffield. A recipient of numerous prizes and awards, he has published ten collections of poetry, including Selected Poems (2001), Seeing Stars (2010) and his acclaimed translation of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight (2007). A broadcaster and presenter, he also writes extensively for television and radio, is the author of two novels, the bestselling memoir All Points North (1998) and Walking Home (2012), his poetic journey along the Pennine Way. In 2010 he received the CBE for services to poetry.
