    schema:description "Tony Harrison: Loiner is published to celebrate the sixtieth birthday of poet and playwright Tony Harrison through an exploration of his work, including his best-known poem. The collection ranges from personal recollections of working with Tony Harrison and personal responses to his poems, to detailed critical analyses of his techniques and themes, covering Harrison's short poems and sonnet sequence, his plays, his television poem-films, and his libretti, spanning the years 1955-1997. A 'loiner' is a native of Leeds, where Tony Harrison was born and spent the early part of his life, and from which he was dispossessed by the enforced translation of the state scholarship system. The word also connotes other aspects of Tony Harrison: the 'loins' of his poetry - its energy and physicality - and the 'loners' who are its main protagonists - men and women dispossessed of their class, nation, language, and identity."@en ;
