The fun of flight – Cecil Day-Lewis

We begin our 5 minutes with Cecil Day-Lewis, poet, as he gives his sober answer to the big question on how poets can earn a living – lower any expectations of any earnings (He himself earned a living from teaching, lecturing and writing detective novels; he had to self-publish his first book of poetry).


Then he reads a highly imaginative and fantastical poem on the experience of flying in an aircraft.

Sober career advice and soaring fantasy – an unusual mix.p048stth.jpg
