Books By Author Simon Armitage
Last Days of Troy, Paperback (October 2016)
Presents the classical tale with all the flare, wit and engagement that we have come to expect from the most distinctive of contemporary authors, and in so doing brought Odysseus' return from the Trojan War memorably to life.
Pearl, Hardback (May 2016)
An entrancing allegorical tale of grief and lost love, as the narrator is led on a Dantean journey through sorrow to redemption by his vanished beloved, Pearl. It is a Medieval English poem thought to be by the same anonymous author responsible for Gawain.
Walking Away, Paperback (May 2016)
From the surreal pleasure dome of Minehead Butlins to a smoke-filled roundhouse on the Penwith Peninsula then out to the Isles of Scilly and beyond, the author tackles this personal Odyssey with all the poetic reflection and personal wit we've come to expect of one of Britain's best loved and most popular writers.
