Hamish Robinson

Synopsis

Hamish Robinson's first collection of poetry, The Gift Returned, is a bawdy and wry look at the pretensions of modern society in the face of humanity's classic and fundamental faults. From the ghost of Lord Rochester wearily receiving the news of another female celebrity's death, and remarking that old men must now put Their handkerchiefs to proper use, for tears, A tribute more in earnest than appears.

Reviews

"Robinson displays a formal accomplishment, a mastery of rhyme and metre, a delicate susceptibility particularly to the understated domestic detail." The Times
