LU English & Creative Writing Dept: Don Paterson

Lancaster University English & Creative Writing Department present: Don Paterson

Don Paterson is one of the most significant voices working in English poetry today. He has published seven collections with Faber & Faber, and his Selected Poems appeared in 2012. His work has received the Forward Prize, the Whitbread Award and the T.S Eliot Prize, among many other awards, including the Queen’s Gold Medal for Poetry. Don has also published two collections of aphorisms, and as an editor he has produced many collections, including 101 Sonnets: From Shakespeare to Heaney and Reading Shakespeare’s Sonnets, a study and commentary described by Clive James as ‘a critical milestone’. The Guardian described his Selected Poems as: ‘Dynamic, interrogative and unsettling; crafted yet open-ended; fiercely smart, savage and stirring – from the get-go, Paterson's poetry has been essential reading.’
