    DescriptionThis generous selection of Tony Harrison's poems includes sixty-three poems from his famous sonnet sequence "The School of Eloquence" and the remarkable long poem 'v', a meditation in a vandalized Leeds graveyard, written during the miners' strike, which created such a stir when it was broadcast on television in the late 1980s.
