Motion, Andrew

▪ British poet and author
in full  Andrew Peter Motion 
born October 26, 1952, London, England

      British poet, biographer, and novelist, especially noted for his narrative poetry, who was made poet laureate of England in 1999. As poet laureate, Motion sought to make poetry accessible to a wider audience. He especially targeted younger people, encouraging schools to teach poetry regularly.

      Motion attended Radley College and University College, Oxford (B.A., 1974; M.Litt., 1977), where he was a student of poet John Fuller. From 1976 to 1980 he taught at the University of Hull and from 1995 at the University of East Anglia in Norwich. In the interim between these teaching positions, he was the editor of Poetry Review (1980–83) and worked in a variety of editorial capacities for two London publishing houses.

      Motion's first verse collection, The Pleasure Steamers, was published in 1978. It contains “Inland,” which describes the fear and helplessness of 17th-century villagers who must abandon their homeland following a devastating flood; the poem received the Newdigate Prize in 1975. Noted for his insight and empathy, Motion frequently wrote about isolation and loss. Much influenced by the poets Edward Thomas (Thomas, Edward) and Philip Larkin (Larkin, Philip)—whose low-key poetic voices often caused their work to be overlooked and undervalued—Motion wrote critical works on both men, The Poetry of Edward Thomas (1980) and Philip Larkin (1982), as well as a biography of Larkin (Philip Larkin: A Writer's Life, 1993). He also produced a biography of poet John Keats (Keats, 1997) and his biography of the talented Lambert family, The Lamberts: George, Constant & Kit (1986), earned him the Somerset Maugham Award (established by Somerset Maugham to enable writers under age 35 to travel to “enrich their writing”) in 1987.

      Motion's later collections of poetry include Secret Narratives (1983), Dangerous Play: Poems, 1974–84 (1984), Natural Causes (1987), Love in a Life (1991), The Price of Everything (1994), Salt Water (1997), and Public Property (2002). Among his works of fiction are The Pale Companion (1989); Famous for the Creatures (1991); Wainewright the Poisoner (2000), a “fictional confession” by 19th-century painter, essayist, and alleged murderer Thomas Griffiths Wainewright; and The Invention of Dr. Cake (2003), a fictional biography of the obscure poet-doctor William Tabor. In 2006 Motion published a memoir, In the Blood, and in 2008 he released a collection of essays titled Ways of Life: On Places, Painters, and Poets.
