poetry times 60…
July 21, 2012
Our friends at Harriet, the Poetry Foundation blog, have alerted us to the fine site, 60 Years in 60 Poems, which marks the 60-year anniversary of the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II. “With a poem for each of the years of the Queen’s reign, Jubilee Lines offers both a unique portrayal of the times in which we have lived, and an essential portrait of today. The poems celebrate the way we speak, the way we chronicle, the way we love and fight, honour and remember.”
Previously published in the anthology Jubilee Lines, commissioned and edited by Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy, the poems are read by actors Samantha Bond, Alex Lanipekun, Lyndsey Marshal and Dan Stevens.
Turn up the volume and feast on the sound of poetry.
