"Edited by Chris Stephens, Senior Curator at Tate Britain, the book includes a number of different perspectives on Hepworth's achievements: her deep interest in music, her feelings about landscape, the influence of relationships and motherhood, and the unflagging passion she had for her work. Contributions by Jeanette Winterson, Simon Armitage, David Lewis, Sophie Bowness, and Peter Murray give fresh insights into the work of this remarkable artist."--Jacket

Homer's Odyssey by Simon Armitage( Book )
15 editions published between 2006 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 256 libraries worldwide
"In this new verse adaptation, originally commissioned for BBC Radio, Simon Armitage has recast Homer's epic as a series of dramatic dialogues: between gods and men; between no-nonsense Captain Odysseus and his unruly, lotus-eating, homesick companions; between subtle Odysseus (wiliest hero of antiquity) and a range of shape-shifting adversaries - Calypso, Circe, the Sirens, the Cyclops - as he and his men are 'pinballed between islands' by adversity." "The Odyssey is a book of changes, and Simon Armitage's retelling of Homer's epic quickens and revitalizes our sense of it as oral poetry: as indeed one of the greatest of tall tales."--Jacket
Sir Gawain and the Green Knight by Anonymous( file )
17 editions published between 2007 and 2017 in English and held by 232 libraries worldwide
The famous Middle English poem by an anonymous Northern England poet is beautifully translated by fellow poet Simon Armitage in this edition. "Sir Gawain and the Green Knight" narrates in crystalline verse the strange tale of a green knight who rudely interrupts the Round Table festivities one Yuletide, casting a pall of unease over the company and challenging one of their number to a wager. The virtuous Gawain accepts, and decapitates the intruder with his own axe. Gushing blood, the knight reclaims his head, orders Gawain to seek him out a year hence, and departs. Next Yuletide Gawain dutifully sets forth. His quest for the Green Knight involves a winter journey, a seduction scene in a dream-like castle, a dire challenge answered, and a drama of enigmatic reward disguised as psychic undoing
