Campbell, Kayleigh A. (2019) Please Alight Here: A collection of poems that explore aspects of life in modern Britain, through the medium of the Northern Rail system. Masters thesis, University of Huddersfield.

‘Please Alight Here’ is a collection of poems which intend to represent the life of modern British people through the medium of the rail network. The main themes include sex, isolation and parenthood, with social and political issues as background themes. Distinctive elements of the collection are intertextuality, character sequences and line isolation. The setting of the poems is the Northern train network influenced by my own Yorkshire identity and the representation of specific Yorkshire locations. Poetic influences on the collection include Simon Armitage, Andrew McMillan and Charlotte Wetton. Critical influence includes Fiona Sampson, Peter Sansom and David Lodge.
