Drawing on subjects as varied as Roman legionaries and a worn-out shirt, modern air travel and the imagined life of a lugworm, A Sense of North searches for purpose and order in the human condition. A sense of wonder finds itself kindled in the small and familiar as much as the large and emotive. Whether pondering the fickleness of memory or the meaning of love and loss, this is poetry that asks what it means to be alive.
David Underdown’s poetry has appeared in numerous anthologies and journals. His first collection, Time Lines, was published by Cinnamon Press and in 2016 a pamphlet, Nasturtium was published as part of the Isle of Arran’s Open Studios Project.
He currently divides his time between Scotland and Hebden Bridge
