About the Author

Andrew Motion is professor of creative writing at Royal Holloway College, University of London, and co-founder of the online Poetry Archive. He has received numerous awards for his poetry, and has published four celebrated biographies. His group study The Lamberts won the Somerset Maugham Award and his authorized life of Philip Larkin won the Whitbread Prize for Biography. Motion was knighted in the United Kingdom for his services to poetry in 2009.


"[Andrew Motion] is unhesitating in his reservations about contemporary politics and climate change, but the primacy of his craft in poetry is never in question. 'Here I am corrupt yet become unearthly innocent' this, one of the many aphorisms that populate the volume, ably stands for the open, despairing, tenacious figure of the poet." --Library Journal, starred review
Past Praise for Andrew Motion:
"Unpredictable, unsentimentally elegant, Motion has inherited all the rhythmic and narrative genius of Robert Frost. 'I stamp both feet and disappear in a cloud, ' he announces in Fresh Water. Lucky for us, he's speaking metaphorically." --Martha Silano
"Motion offers an ambitious and engaging inquiry into mortality, politics, and place." --Publishers Weekly
