Simon Armitage’s poetry is inspired by the language and landscape of West Yorkshire, where he was born, and looks beyond to larger global concerns. His latest collection The Unaccompanied takes us on a series of journeys from Yorkshire to the edge of the end of the world.
His acclaimed translation of the 14th century quest narrative – Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, set in King Arthur’s court at Camelot at Christmas – has sold over one hundred thousand copies. Join us for a festive foray into God’s own county as we celebrate the rich literary heritage and culture of Hull and Yorkshire in our ‘Reading the Ridings/Writing the City’ series.
Followed by book signing.
