The Poet Laureate (1999-09) and Professor of Creative Writing at Royal Holloway and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature. His biography of Philip Larkin was awarded the Whitbread Prize of Biography in 1994.

'Motion's greatest and most distinctive gift... is to look squarely at the world and describe it with a plain and unsentimental eloquence that makes world value seem all the more questionable' (Independent on Sunday)

'Mysterious ballads, thoughtful elegies and tender love poems flow out in a contemporary voice which is exceptionally lucid and self-aware, yet retains a haunting and unearthly music' (The Daily Telegraph).
