Contributors include practising poets, playwrights, specialists in classics, theatre, translation studies, English and world literature, and professionals in media where Harrison's extensive work has been least researched. The aim of the volume is to explore new approaches to the understanding of the work of one of our most important poets. The volume examines four main areas: Tony Harrison's more recent poems; the continuation of his relationship with ancient theatre after the landmark Oresteia and Trackers of the 1980-1990 decade, alongside his evolving dramatic relationship with Euripides and with French authors (Hugo, Moliere, Racine); Harrison's profound contribution during his periods of residence abroad in Africa, North America, Moscow and Prague, and his popularity in French and Italian translation; his extensive body of poems written specifically for television and radio. This is a must for fans of Tony Harrison's work and for those with an interest in, or studying English literature, classical mythology, theatre studies, and film courses."@en ;
