1966 | Photograph, Art Student, Female, Working Class by Liz Lochhead
Read here by Lyndsey Marshal, this is Liz Lochhead's contribution to 'Jubilee Lines', Carol Ann Duffy's anthology of poems marking 60 years of the Queen's reign. It's a poem about 1966, capturing the age of Vidal Sasson, Mary Quant and emerging feminism. 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.
