News at Eleven: "There was also Wilfred Owen,

the greatest war poet of our language. I couldn't do what he was doing but I took a lot of attitude from him.

"But I would have to say that William Blake was also a huge influence on me. In terms of vision . . . definitely Blake. In terms of style . . . William Carlos Williams."

from The Morning Call: Philip Levine: Garrulous, gruff, bold and brilliant poet
