Ode to Didcot Power Station
Published by Bloodaxe Books
Few English poets have quite Kit Wright's range. From heart-felt lyricism to blistering satire, from the ribald to the grief-stricken, his poems cover almost everything life can throw at anyone, quite literally from the sublime to the ridiculous.
Entertaining and engaging, writing with wit, panache and dazzling virtuosity, Kit Wright is both a seriously funny poet and a poignant chronicler of our times. His latest collection, published on his 70th birthday, shows him young at heart and writing, as always, from the heart of England.
'Sublime… Kit Wright, one of the best poets writing in Britain today' – Carol Ann Duffy, Guardian.
'Funny and profoundly human' – Christina Patterson, Sunday Times.
'Masterly yet modest' – Sean O'Brien, TLS.
