What a Poet Sees 

Professor Michael Symmons Roberts Manchester Metropolitan University

Interviewed by the Reverend Canon Michael Burgess

[This distinguished prize-winning poet will discuss the art of poetry and his own writing, and will read from his work.  After graduating in philosophy and theology and training as a journalist he has worked as a radio producer, a documentary film maker and as Head of Development for BBC Religion and Ethics.  He left the BBC to teach at MMU, and to focus on writing, including lyrics and libretti for the composer James MacMillan.  He could be seen as a modern John Donne, producing poems which are sharply observed and concise, but rich in metaphysical meaning.]
