Marilyn Hacker will read at Newcastle Poetry Festival.  

Marilyn Hacker has, in a career spanning more than 40 years,established herself as a preeminent poet and translator.She is renowned for her use of form, and her mixing ofcolloquial and high culture, and has been aptly named a 'radical formalist'. Her latest book Blazons: New and Selected Poems 2000-2018 (Carcanet, 2018) is a PBS Special Commendation. Hannah Sullivan's exhilarating debut Three Poems (Faber, 2018), which counterposes innocence and disappointment, birth and grief, was awarded the 2018 T S Eliot Prize.Toby Martinez de las Rivas has published two books with Faber, most recently Black Sun, a work of startling meditation on history, theology, preservation and redemption.

Tickets are £6/£4 and more information can be found here.
