Life Saving: Josephine Hart’s Introductions to Great Poets

Josephine Hart said that “for a girl with no sense of direction, poetry was a route map through life.”

As the book of her illuminating introductions to the great poets is published posthumously, actors Jamie Ballard and Fiona Shaw are joined by Robert F Browning to read her introductions to Wilde, Browning and Rossetti's verse.

Wed 14 November 2012, 6pm

Tickets £4 (£3 concessions)
