Simon Armitage in the Arctic


This piece in 'The Guardian' looks at a recent visit made by the Poet Laureate (and geography graduate) Simon Armitage to Svalbard.

It talks about a new poem called 'The Summit', which is featured in the piece.

He travels with Jemma Wadham, whose recent book 'Ice Rivers' is excellent...

The poems from the series are available in a special signed Faber pamphlet which I have a copy of.
