The first section, Landscapes, undertakes an imaginative overflight of the poet’s ‘native Pennine places’ including the region around Pen-y-Ghent, the beautiful valley of Dentdale, the Settle to Carlisle railway and – above all – the majestic Pennine moors. Satires begins with the re-entry of Fox, a slippery character from two of the poet’s earlier collections. Acerbic satire follows on a number of themes, including a six-part narrative poem on the doings of an unscrupulous PR firm named Steel-capped PR.
