Allie Esiri Presents Women Poets Through The Ages

April 2019

The poetry curator Allie Esiri and special guest actors, Helena Bonham CarterHelen McCrory and another very special guest take us on a journey through the history of women’s writing, from Eneheduanna, the world’s first known poet, via Sappho, to the most powerful, illuminating and entertaining women’s writing of today including Maya Angelou and Carol Ann Duffy. The poems are taken from Allie Esiri’s hugely successful anthologies published by Macmillan – A Poem for Every Day of the Year and A Poem for Every Night of the Year.

Allie Esiri is an accomplished host of live and recorded poetry events and has worked with readers such as Harry Enfield, Tom Hiddleston, Sheila Atim, Damian Lewis, Simon Russell Beale, Giles Terera and Emma Watson.
