    Collection of poems so far If you can listen to him reading them rather than read as they are better live so to speak What armitage does so well is he writes work that is both current yet timeless.Not sure what others think but i think armitage captures an emotional truth that few others have.

    I d have just bought this if I d seen it before Collected Poems, but there s enough variation from the half of this book that covers the same period that I don t mind too much.Not really sure what to get next.

    Thank god my friend told me we didn t need to read this for the quiz because I was torturing myself trying to read this Do not recommend if you don t like poems I guess I liked I Say I Say I Say but honestly I m not a poem person so trying to read 200 page poem collection was the worst.
