A reading by two of our finest performers of poetry. Frank Bidart’s new book is Half-light: Collected Poems. “No other poet sounds like Bidart,” wrote Garth Greenwell. You can hear the muscular physicality of his language, the way the sentence twists around the line breaks, never quite as expected. His work is one of the unfolding wonders of the literature of our time.”

Alice Oswald’s new collection is Falling Awake. “Hers is a mystical work, and when she writes you can hear the long heritage of English verse behind her,” wrote The Economist. “Her poems have a rhythmical tightness. They are propulsive, forward-pulsing, knitting one line to another. She is acutely alive in the world.”
