Where is British Poetry Today?

Professor Stephen Regan joins Anne Stevenson and Simon Armitage in a British Academy discussion about the state of contemporary poetry.

He explains why anthologies play a key role in representing and shaping trends in British poetry, and how contemporary poets such as Anne Stevenson have returned to traditional forms in their new work.

The vidcast was recorded as part of the British Academy’s Literature Week 2013; it also celebrates the 80th birthday year of Durham-based poet, Anne Stevenson. Stephen Regan is director of the Centre for Poetry and Poetics.
