Arthur Broomfield’s sense of history excavates the fustier corners of things wemight almost forget, but which he refuses to ignore. These observant poems sparkle with a unique response to experience as he writes of love and marriage, the ‘poetry’ of a sporting fixture to the ears of a young boy, or the menace of the IRA at odds with the joy of the 1990 FIFA World Cup.
