A signed limited edition pamphlet of new sonnets by the Poet Laureate on the occasion of his 60th birthday.
In a signed, limited edition, to mark Simon Armitage’s birthday, LX collects fifteen sonnets in sixty stanzas. These verses find the poet in a conversational tussle with his argumentative and occasionally insolent soul. Mischievous and sometimes melancholy, the pieces reflect a long querulous relationship explored through ingenious workings of the sonnet form.
