Andrew Motion – Selected Poems: 1976 – 1997


This book was a pleasant little surprise, helped by the fact that I got it super cheap at a village fair in aid of charity. I think I paid 20p for it, which was well worth it. Motion is a former poet laureate, and while I wasn’t blown away by his poetry and his writing, it was still a decent enough read and worth reading if you get a chance.

Motion’s poetry blurs the line between classical and contemporary, but I can see how much of the work here would have been innovative when it first appeared. I don’t think I’d go out of my way to read any more of his work, but I am glad that I got the chance to read this much. I think poetry like Motion’s is necessary.
