‘Songwriters are not poets’ Simon Armitage
Did Bob Dylan’s Nobel Prize in Literature win redefine the boundaries of literature? Or do we, by calling it poetry, deny music a place as its own unique art form? A group of poets, musicians and performance artists discuss the relationship between lyrics and poetry.
The panellists for the talk are actor and poet Jade Anouka, spoken word artist Steven Camden (Polarbear), musician and songwriter Charlie Fink, and musician, poet and actor Johnny Flynn. Writer and music critic Dorian Lynskey chairs.
