Host: Hay Festival
Speaker: Philip Gross
The TS Eliot Prize-winning poet introduces his new collection. In his nineties, Gross’s father, a wartime refugee, began to lose his several languages, first to deafness, then to profound aphasia. Deeply thought as well as deeply felt, these poems reach into that gulf to find him – through recovery of histories both spoken and unspoken as well as an excavation of the spoken word itself. Chaired by Kathryn Gray.More Information
