39. Don Paterson reading and conversation

The Arctic is Don Paterson’s most moving and eclectic collection since Landing Light, Winner of the Whitbread and the T. S. Eliot Prize. Elegies for the poet’s musician father; tales of the love lives of gods and the childhoods of psychopaths; troubled encounters between men and women; odes to movies and the male anatomy; studies of art and ambition, politics and parenthood. By turns urgent, railing and tender, these are poems of and for our times, by one of the UK’s most celebrated and formally adventurous writers. Chaired by Jonathan Davidson, a poet and Chief Executive of Writing West Midlands.
