Tyrannosaurus Rex and the Corduroy Kid

Tyrannosaurus Rex and the Corduroy Kid

Written by: Armitage, Simon

Marked by the signature qualities of invention, wit, and streetwise humour that made Simon Armitage's reputation, Tyrannosaurus Rex Versus the Corduroy Kid engages deeply with some of the most pressing oppositions of our time. Man versus monster; conflict versus conversation; age versus youth; humanity versus its environment; utopia versus what we're living through now. This is a combative and moving book and an answer to anyone who's ever accused poetry of receding into irrelevance.
