Raymond Antrobus – ‘The Perseverance’ – Swansea University Centenary Lecture
Recorded live on Tuesday 26th May 2020.

In this special online Swansea University Centenary Lecture, Professor in Creativity at Swansea University, Owen Sheers, is joined by poet Raymond Antrobus, winner of the 2019 Ted Hughes Award, Sunday Times Young Writers Award and the Rathbones Folio Prize for his debut collection The Perseverance. Arresting, challenging and generous, Antrobus’s poems move through continents and history to create a stunning collection of verve, empathy and craft that encompasses issues of deafness, masculinity, dementia, race and heritage.
