Professor Simon Armitage - Professor of Poetry Lectures

Simon Armitage

Professor Simon Armitage, Professor of Poetry 2015 - 2019.

"The subject of the inaugural lecture, and one that will raise its head throughout the course of my appointment, will be poetry's relationship with the outside world and the role that poets occupy in our society. I'll begin by focusing on a poem written in the mid-seventeenth century and close by analysing a poem published earlier this year" - Professor Simoan Armitage, 2015
