Join Ana Sampson and author and poet, Polly Clark, as they discuss the history of female poetry, with readings from favourite poets. 

From the ancient world to the present day, an array of innovative and inspirational women have written on friendship, protest, mental health, love, and more. 

Among those featured are Maya Angelou, Carol Ann Duffy, Emily Dickinson, Christina Rossetti, Charlotte Bronte. Polly’s latest poetry collection is Farewell My Lovely. Her first novel, Larchfield, was published last year to great acclaim.
