<i>How To Describe A Tree At Night</i> collects poems from across the extraordinary career of one of the UK’s most treasured poets, Stephen Watts. Gathering all of Watts’ published works between 1975 and 2005—as well as a number of unpublished pieces appearing here for the very first time—this collection is an astonishing journey through the life and eyes of a remarkable writer of place and people.

This long-awaited volume presents the breadth of Watts’ writing, from early prose-poems, through long narrative sequences, fragmentary episodes, and later poetic meditations—all in Watts’ unmistakable voice. A writer of both the intensely personal and deeply-felt universal, Watts’ poetry charts rich familial histories, friendships, and encounters, set in both remote, rural landscapes across Europe and the changing, urban environs of East London, where Watts has spent much of his life.

<i>How To Describe A Tree At Night</i>&nbsp;provides a captivating
introduction to his life and work, as well as an indispensable companion to readers for
years to come.
