79. Em Strang, Alyson Hallett and Iain Galbraith: What Gladness Can Poetry Offer Us?

At this time of painful endings – climate change, political distrust, war and a global pandemic – what gladness can poetry offer us? In conversation with poet & translator, Iain Galbraith, two poets from opposite ends of the UK, Alyson Hallett and Em Strang, present compelling narratives of the redemptive powers of nature, entanglement and embodied presence. Em Strang’s Horse-Man and Alyson Hallet’s Tilted Ground invite us to remember that grief and joy are two sides of the same mysterious coin.
