Description - Selected Poems of Andrew Motion by Sir Andrew Motion

In his Selected Poems 1976-1997, Andrew Motion has made his own choice from an outstandingly fine and varied body of work. Dramatic monologues, elegies, poems of social and political observation, love lyrics - all are part of his repertoire. His concern for the extremes of human experience and an artistic integrity that insists on addressing the reader with maximum clarity and impact are consistent features of a career otherwise remarkable for its imaginative range and technical versatility.
