Poet Wendy Cope talks about her new collection of poems, 'Anecdotal Evidence', and reads some of her verse.
Cope is one of the nation’s best-loved poets, with a sharp eye for human foibles and a wry sense of humour. The eagerly awaited 'Anecdotal Evidence' is her fifth collection of poems, the first since 'Family Values' in 2011. It includes poems about childhood, and love and death, a group of poems commissioned for the Shakespeare anniversary in 2016, and tributes to John Cage and Eric Morecambe.

This event is part of St Hilda’s Day at the Oxford Literary Festival.
