The Rimbaud of Leeds: The Political Character of Tony Harrison’s Poetry

by Christine Regan


"This is a lucidly written and structured book which sheds genuinely new light on a poet rightly described as a singular presence in contemporary British poetry." — The Modern Language Review

"Meticulously researched ... an unusually astute and impressively well informed guide to the poetry. Even those well versed in Harrison’s work will, I suspect, depart this volume with new insights and new knowledge in hand ... In the age of Trump and Brexit, there is a certain pathos to seeing this one time member of the ‘white working class’ prove so inclined to side with postcolonial peoples in their struggles with the architects of the post-war order. ... Regan’s work offers many new and valuable insights." —English - Journal of the English Association

"...offers much to that is useful and enlightening for readers of Harrison's poetry." — English Studies

“Beautifully conceived and written …Illuminates one of the most important poets of our time.” — Professor Edith Hall, King’s College London
