Michael Rosen

The Aneurin Bevan Lecture

 
Hay Festival 2022 , 

Michael Rosen traces the history of Bevan and the NHS, an institution that Rosen celebrates in his latest work Many Different Kinds of Love: A Story of Life, Death and the NHS, a collection of stunning new prose poems, moving diaries from nurses and his own reflections on the desperate struggle with Covid-19, which saw him hospitalised for months in 2020. Aneurin Bevan was one of the most important ministers in the post-war Labour government. This lecture honours his work as the main architect of the National Health Service and his contribution to the UK’s Welfare State.
