19. Don Paterson and Maddy Paxman on Michael Donaghy

Don Paterson’s 50 Ways to Read a Poet: The reader’s guide to the poetry of Michael Donaghy is the first substantial critical work to be written on one of the UK’s best-loved poets, who died tragically early at the age of fifty in 2004.

Through a combination of readings and conversation Paterson and Michael’s widow Maddy Paxman will discuss his life and his powerful, complex, moving and memorable poetry.
