Books Info:

Selected Poems free pdf Peter Sansom's "Selected Poems" brings together twenty years of quintessential Sansom, a poet who has made the local and familiar his own resonant territory. Supermarkets and darts matches, life with teenagers and family funerals, the common ground of modern life, make up the fabric of poems that capture the distinctiveness of the ordinary with a robust and sharp-eyed tenderness. "Selected Poems" includes revised versions of poems from Peter Sansom's four Carcanet collections, with poems from his 2009 pamphlet "The Night is Young".
