Collected Poems


Tony Harrison published his first pamphlet of poems in 1964 and for over fifty years has been a prominent force in modern poetry.

His poetic range is truly far-reaching, from the intimate tenderness of family life and personal love, to war poems from Bosnia and savage public outcries against politicians. The Collected Poems draws deeply both on classical tradition and on the vernacular of the street. Combining the private and the public in a way Harrison has made distinctly his own, and drawing on his working-class upbringing, these are powerful poems for modern times.
