The Pleasure Steamers, Paperback Book

The Pleasure Steamers Paperback



"The Pleasure Steamers" is Andrew Motion's first collection of poems.

Formally adventurous, in the way his work has continued to be, the collection explores relationships, geographies and the legacy of the past to the present.

Long sequences such as "Inland" and "Anniversaries" are interspersed with short, sharp lyrics which display the control, flare and delicacy which are the hallmarks of the Poet Laureate.
