Gillian Clarke

Making Beds for the Dead

Hay Festival 2004 , 
The great Welsh poet discusses and reads her new collection which celebrates her themes of family, landscape and nature. The title poem charts the journey of a virus in 'the plague year'. Come from outer space, it travels - on a fox's paw, the beak of a kite and a crow and a buzzard - into the very heart of our lives.
