Faber & Faber - 1954 | The Royal Visit by Fleur Adcock
1954 | The Royal Visit by Fleur Adcock
Read by Lyndsey Marshal, 'The Royal Visit' is Fleur Adcock's contribution to Jubilee Lines, a new poetry anthology edited by Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy, marking the Diamond Jubilee. 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.
