Glyn Maxwell and Jo Shapcott – In Celebration of Auden and MacNeice

As part of the 2007 Sunday Times Oxford Literary Festival, Tower Poetry sponsored a reading by Jo Shapcott and Glyn Maxwell in celebration of W H Auden and Louis MacNeice, whose centenaries fell that year. The event offered a rare opportunity to hear two of today’s most acclaimed poets read their own work alongside poetry they love. The reading was chaired, in Auden’s own college, by Tower Poetry’s Peter McDonald.
