1994 | Chunnel / Le Tunnel sous la Manche by Patience Agbabi
Read here by Samantha Bond, 'Chunnel / Le Tunnel sous la Manche' is Patience Agbabi's contribution to 'Jubilee Lines' for the year 1994, when a particular feat of engineering changed travel for escaping Brits forever. 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.
