VIOLENCE IN POETRY

on Third Programme

A critical discussion between members of an invited audience including
DONALD DAVIE, ANTHONY THWAITE, EDWARD LUCIE-SMITH,
PETER Porter, VERNON SCANNELL under the chairmanship of PHILIP HOBSBAUM
The discussion arises from a reading of five poems by the poets themselves:
1790 by Robert Lowell
Hawk Roosting by Ted Hughes part of Howl by Allen Ginsberg
Sunny Prestatyn by Philip Larkin and Innocence by Thorn Gunn
Not all of these poems will necessarily be read while the programme is on the air.
Introduced by GEORGE MACBETH
