Knopf will release Seeing Stars, his new collection of poems, in the US in August 2011.
One of Armitage's six best books, as told to the Scottish Sunday Express:
Le Morte d’Ar thur by Sir Thomas MaloryRead about the other books on the list.
Malory’s masterwork is a jewel in the crown of British literature. He pulled all the Welsh myths and French Romances together creating the definitive work by which we know the tales of King Arthur. Malory himself was a shadowy figure, he was a knight-prisoner who may have written the work while he was incarcerated in the Tower of London.
