Five Poets across Five Decades

Part of London Literature Festival

Look at the work of those who’ve taken the Poetry International stage as our Autumn Book Club marks 50 years of the festival.

Drawing on the National Poetry Library’s unique collection of recordings from the festival, we visit one poem from each decade and celebrate Basil Bunting, Paul Muldoon, Sonia Sanchez, Tua Forsström, and Choman Hardi, poets from across the world who have spoken at Southbank Centre’s longest running festival.
