FOUR TIMES NORTH

FOUR TIMES NORTH by Linda France, Mark Robinson, W. N. Herbert and Andy Croft

The anthology Four Times North presents poems by four contemporary British poets in Bulgarian. What they all have in common is that they live in the north of England. W. N. Herbert, whose roots are Scottish, is a university lecturer, known for his love of the linguistic find, the unexpected detail and the overlooked possibilities of language. Andy Croft is witty, critical of public issues, a frankly left and yet lyrical poet. He has taught creative writing to all sorts of “difficult” groups, from children to prisoners. Linda France, also a teacher of creative writing, is addicted to nature, to the silent world of plants, to those untouched by commercialization. Mark Robinson was executive director of the Arts Council (North East) and, during this time, refrained from publishing his own poetry so as not to create any doubt that he was in conflict of interest. His poems can be jokey or offensive; they are characterized by an elegant tone, a sense of the spirit of the local landscape and the directness of speech.
