Alice Oswald on Ted Hughes

Alice Oswald talks about the poetry of Ted Hughes, with help from recordings of his readings at New York's 92nd Street Y, which for nearly 80 years has been a home to the voices of literature, hosting in its famed Reading Series the greatest literary artists of the 20th century and recording for posterity their appearances as part of its vast audio archive.

She is joined by Bernard Schwartz, who produces 92Y's Reading Series as director of its Unterberg Poetry Center. Recorded at the London Review Bookshop on 7 March 2017.
