    The Unaccompanied ePUB ☆ Hardcover unaccompanied book, The Unaccompanied MOBIA quite stark and dark collection of poetry featuring a critique of modern life and austerity I do enjoy a collection of poetry every so often and I actually chose this Armitage collection to teach to my yr 13 class for their exams but I and they found it very heavy going There are some real brilliant poems here Thank you for waiting Gymnasium The Present The Poet Hosts His Annual Office Christmas Party Kitchen Window Poor Old Soul Nurse at a Bus Stop and Poundland

    The Unaccompanied ePUB ☆ Hardcover unaccompanied book, The Unaccompanied MOBII heard Simon Armitage read some of these poems at Hay which is what prompted me to buy the book It also meant that as I read them I heard them in his voice It is a very varied collection lots of humour but some very bleak points too I also discovered a couple of YouTube videos of his poems which are worth checking out

    The Unaccompanied ePUB ☆ Hardcover unaccompanied book, The Unaccompanied MOBIThis is the finest poetry collection of a British master that I have read for years and I read quite a number from contemporary poets with a growing sense of disappointment at their lack of artistic courage verbal colour and their narrowness of socio political focusThis group of stunning poems really rugby tackles body checks contemporary Britaindare I say England?heaving down holding up to the unmerciless light such vital current issues as increasin

    The Unaccompanied ePUB ☆ Hardcover unaccompanied book, The Unaccompanied MOBISuch is Armitage's skill and voice as a poet that there is pleasure resonance to be had even from poems whose meaning escapes me There are some of these here And some too that get away too completely And then there are those whose meaning seems completely clear and the words a joy Sad wry perhaps To Do List featuring Donald Campbell was funny and then uncomfortable Poundland u

    The Unaccompanied ePUB ☆ Hardcover unaccompanied book, The Unaccompanied MOBISome of the poems in this collection made my synapses implode The range of Mr Armitage's voice is astonishing He can do opulent and sparse bucolic and urban Beowulfian and airport announcements slapstick and deathI read over a thousand poems in the last few months and I'd say the twenty very best ones I found in this slim wonderful volume

    The Unaccompanied ePUB ☆ Hardcover unaccompanied book, The Unaccompanied MOBIThis collection features a number of excellent poems from Armitage such as Poundland Last Snowman and the eponymous The Unaccompanied alongside a few others that are less arresting and feel a bit like filler material Overall Armitage's distinctive voice cynical darkly humorous and wonderfully relatable makes this a poetry collection to savour and re read but the variations in quality across poems mean that this is not his best work

    The Unaccompanied ePUB ☆ Hardcover unaccompanied book, The Unaccompanied MOBIUnmistakeable Armitage with a number of poems about modern life alongside a number about wild British landscapes Some poems deliver themselves with a punch and a vigour Gymnasium Thank you for Waiting others resist easy interpretation prompting a sense of one's own flaws as a reader in the thought That can't be it can it? Sometimes poems shift around with incongruities and will need further research before yielding greater depths Reviewers linked this to a state of the nation collection I am not so sure about this as I struggled to find the tendrils of Brexit in it I think I found one about Farage pissing off after the result the

    The Unaccompanied ePUB ☆ Hardcover unaccompanied book, The Unaccompanied MOBIThe Unaccompanied has all the verve and feeling that first drew me to the poetry of Simon Armitage in early collections Zoom and Kid There's a maturity of view in his new collection Armitage is now in his fifties that gives an intensity of perception and a sense of regret at the transitoriness of things that I haven't seen before in his work except perhaps in his long millennium poem Five Eleven Ninety Nine Some of the poems in The Unaccompanied are about places that I know very well Wakefield Westgate station Tinsley viaduct the corpse road that winds up behind Dove Cottage in Grasmere which gives them a particular resonanceI really liked everyt

    The Unaccompanied ePUB ☆ Hardcover unaccompanied book, The Unaccompanied MOBII saw the advertisement for this book on FaberFaber and it had a video with Armitage reading the poem Thank You for Waiting I was immediately hooked The straight to the heart dissection of the current society one of the most banal experience waiting in the airport transformed in a poem It is only one of the poems from this collection that really connects Another wonderful example would be The Present which won the 2010 Keats Shelley Prize for Poetry but even important made me wonder about the presents I will leave my daughter This book is a rare jewel politically socially personally environmentally engaging and poetically delivered too Another beautiful edition from FaberFaber worthwhile addition to any library
