A rare opportunity for a poetry round-the-world tour.
See four of the most outstanding poets from America, Australia, England and Scotland - Tess Gallagher, John Kinsella, Jean Sprackland and Douglas Dunn. Tess Gallagher launches her new book, Midnight Lantern, drawing on 40 incredible years of poetry, including poems for her late husband, Raymond Carver. John Kinsella's poetry explores landscape and the politics of place. His latest collection is Armour, shortlisted for the TS Eliot Prize. Equally rooted in place, Jean Sprackland's poems will leave your imagination doing back flips. Melyvin Bragg says Douglas Dunn, 'is among the finest of our poets' and we happen to agree. His breathtaking poetry lives up to his own teaching - it works in the mind, in the heart and in the ear.
