Description

Details

Yorkshire Sculpture Park publishes Flit, a 40th anniversary collection of poems by renowned poet Simon Armitage.

The fully illustrated publication comprises 40 poems by Armitage, who was poet in residence at YSP throughout 2017, its 40th anniversary year. The residency saw Armitage, a regular visitor to YSP, choose to explore its landscape, sculptures and buildings in a new light. Rather than writing a direct commentary on the Park, he has redefined it as its own country, the little known YSP (pronounced eesp). Letting his imagination run wild, Armitage has mapped an elaborate, alternative reality that melds fact and fiction, creating a fanciful existence for both YSP and the poet himself. The resulting poems tell the story of YSP through his eyes as an outsider getting to grips with life in an unfamiliar place during a period of self-imposed exile.
