Kenneth Steven

Over the past 20 years, Kenneth Steven has become one of the country's most popular poets. Drawing on a quiet Celtic spirituality and a love of wild Scotland, his engaging poetry offers us something beautiful, evocative, moving and captivating. He is also a highly successful broadcaster, featuring regularly on national radio. His BBC Radio 4 documentary on the island of St Kilda won him a prestigious Sony Award.

'I find myself dipping very naturally into the poems, which have great freshness and honesty, often amounting to a striking purity and a real grasp of the physical essence of things. They're full of arresting phrases and images, and they're full of heart.' -- Graham Swift 'Enjoying Kenneth Steven's work intensely - style and subject.' -- Ted Hughes 'Kenneth Steven's poems ring bells in us, and chime with the profoundest responses of the human spirit.' -- Magnus Magnusson 'Kenneth Steven has a ready sensitivity to the beauty of small moments.'
