Late News from Britain


Christopher Smith writes poetry predominantly based on the countryside he knows and loves, the South West and Wales. Yet he is not sentimental but has an objective eye which gives his work an acute atmospheric influence. He can also be sharply satirical.

Smith’s handling of verse is witty, spiced with a wry sense of humour. The main voice of his poems is nature-bound, with a strong dislike of too much talk and false traditionalism.
