Peter Knaggs is interested in how the ordinary and extraordinary interweave. His poetry is about storytelling and characters. Informed by modern poetics and culture, Cilla Black has as much to do with the outcome as Simic, 0’Brien, Sweeney or Armitage. Tolstoy On A Horse, is a chronicle of his time spent as poet in residence of his own home, 75 Chanterlands Avenue, Hull.

Tolstoy On A Horse features in Half a Pint of Tristram Shandy.
