Cloudcuckooland by Simon Armitage is another infectiously lively and insightful collection from the wildly popular and acclaimed poet.
We are temporarily only able to ship Faber Shop orders to addresses in the UK.
From his home in a West Yorkshire village proverbially associated with cuckoos, Simon Armitage has been probing the night sky with the aid of a powerful Russian telescope. The sequence of eighty-eight poems at the heart of CloudCuckooLand springs from this preoccupation, each poem receiving its title from one of the constellations, while turning out to be less concerned with pure astronomy than with moments in the life of the poet’s mind.
