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.

A recipient of numerous prizes and awards, he has published eleven collections of poetry, including Paper Aeroplane: Selected Poems 1989-2014 and his acclaimed translation of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight (2007). He also writes extensively for television and radio and is the author of two novels and the non-fiction bestsellers All Points North (1998) Walking Home (2012), and Walking Away (2015).
