The Long Take: Robin Robertson

August 28, 2018

Robin Robertson is one of Britain’s most acclaimed poets. His recently released book-length narrative poem, The Long Take, is ‘a beautiful, vigorous and achingly melancholy hymn to the common man that is as unexpected as it is daring. Here we have a poet at the peak of his symphonic powers taking a great risk, and succeeding gloriously.’ (John Banville, The Guardian). Robertson performs his poetry and speaks with poet Harry Ricketts about his work and his other life as an editor at Jonathan Cape, at the National Library of New Zealand.
