Tony Harrison

Tony Harrison, one of my favourite--one of the most inspiring, to me--contemporary poets profiled in the Guardian. My grandmother thinks I use too much bad language in my poems; she's clearly never read any Harrison...

Seems he's got a Collected Poems coming out, which is great news. High time I replaced my old edition of his Selected.

The Guardian also has a links page to other Harrison stuff--why don't we have a newspaper like that here???--and here's a link to some of his poems online. If you're going to read just one by him, make it V.
