This Poem


This Poem… is a new short collection of verse by the inimitable Blake Morrison.

Bankers, tax havens, call centres, the riots, Jimmy Savile and the Olympics – all these and more appear alongside tender and more personal pieces by one of Britain’s best loved writers.

These witty, astute and hugely enjoyable snapshots of contemporary life are a topical tour-de-force – ‘news that will stay news’.

Blake Morrison is well known for his fiction and award-winning prose memoirs (including And When Did You Last See Your Father?). But he began as a poet and this pamphlet marks a welcome return to his favourite form.
