    • Abstract:
      A powerful new collection of poetry from the National Book Critics Circle Award nominee and recipient of the Forward Poetry Prize In The Unaccompanied, Armitage gives voice to the people of Britain with a haunting grace. We meet characters whose sense of isolation is both emotional and political, both real and metaphorical, from a son made to groom the garden hedge as punishment, to a nurse standing alone at a bus stop as the centuries pass by, to a latter-day Odysseus looking for enlightenment and hope in the shadowy underworld of a cut-price supermarket. We see the changing shape of England itself, viewed from a satellite'like a shipwreck's carcass raised on a sea-crane's hook, / nothing but keel, beams, spars, down to its bare bones.'In this exquisite collection, Armitage X-rays the weary but ironic soul of his nation, with its'Songs about mills and mines and a great war, / lines about mermaids and solid gold hills, / songs from broken hymnbooks and cheesy films'--in poems that blend the lyrical and the vernacular, with his trademark eye for detail and biting wit.
