Jacob Polley

Jacob Polley won the 2016 T.S. Eliot Prize for poetry for his fourth book of poems, Jackself, which was described by the judges as ‘a firework of a book; inventive, exciting and outstanding in its imaginative range and depth of feeling.’ A poet of the uncanny and the startlingly lyrical, Jacob’s work explores his rural upbringing, the forces of tradition and history, and the power of speech as it approaches song. He is Professor of Creative Writing at Newcastle University and lives with his family on the north east coast
