Host: London Literature Festival
Location: Southbank Centre, Belvedere Road, London SE1 8XX
Speaker: James Fenton

Join James Fenton, one of the great lyric poets of our age and a fine reader of his work, at this reading to mark the publication of Yellow Tulips, Poems 1968-2011, which covers over 40 years of memorable work. Whether in political monologues or in tender love poetry, Fenton's poetry is always distinguished by his great formal skill. James Fenton's collections include The Memory of War and Children in Exile, and he has been awarded the Queen's Gold Medal and the Whitbread Prize for Poetry.

'The most talented poet of his generation.' (The Observer)
