'Armitage creates a muscular but elegant language of his own out of slangy, youthful, up-to-the-minute jargon and the vernacular of his native northern England. He combines this with an easily worn erudition, plenty of nous and the benefit of unblinkered experience... to produce poems of moving originality.' Peter Reading, Sunday Times; 'Armitage writes with wit and feeling about experiences and conditions which poetry often turns its back on.' Jamie McKendrick, Independent; 'Of the fresh faces that have enlivened poetry over the last half-dozen years, none has loomed larger or fresher than that of Simon Armitage.' Mick Imlah, Vogue
