The Poetry Podcast with Lance Pierson


Jul 16, 2020

In our sixth programme we read our first listener-nominated poem - 'The Charge of the Light Brigade' by Alfred Lord Tennyson. Since he wrote it while he was Poet Laureate Lance also reads two other poems by famous holders of that office. '14th November 1973' by John Betjeman - on the occasion of Princess Anne's wedding to Mark Phillips. And Carol Ann Duffy's 'Last Post' - written to commemorate the deaths of two veterans of the First World War.
