Poetry. This collection brings together many of the finest of Bill Griffiths' longer poems, including two quite new sequences, "A Tour of the Fairground" and "The Violinist." Topics range from urban incarceration to rural Hungary. The width of focus is deliberate: as Griffiths puts it, "There is no such thing as English poetry, only poetry in English."
Bill Griffiths was a poet, Anglo-Saxon scholar, book designer, small press publisher, biker, houseboat owner, pianist, archivist and social historian who late in his career moved from London to North East England where he reinvigorated the study of the region's dialect. He died in 2007 at the age of 59. Author City: London UNK
