Robin Robertson is from the north-east of Scotland and is one of the finest and most influential of contemporary poets. He has published six books of poetry and received a number of accolades, including the Petrarca-Preis, the E.M. Forster Award, the Roehampton Prize, a Cholmondeley Award and all three Forward Prizes. His selected poems, Sailing the Forest, came out in 2014 in Britain and America. His most recent work - The Long Take - has rightly been hailed as a masterpiece. A long narrative poem, or a novel in verse form, it stakes out new literary territory, referencing film noir and the music of the times. Brilliant and unforgettable.
