“I was a very sleepy student until we started reading Ted Hughes...and I just woke up.” Simon Armitage talks to the U.K. Government Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport about what first drew him to poetry and why the medium has only grown more important in recent years. Armitage was named the twenty-first U.K. poet laureate.
