One Lark, One Horse: Michael Hofmann and Declan Ryan

One Lark, One Horse is Michael Hofmann’s first new collection of poetry for almost two decades, and more than justifies the wait; Stephen Romer writes that Hofmann has given us ‘a handle on our own helplessness, our fecklessness and unease’, and George Szirtes more succinctly has described his writing as ‘a poetry of nerves’.

He read from the new collection, and talked about it with Declan Ryan, whose pamphlet in the Faber New Poets series was published in 2014.
