Clare Pollard reads from Changeling
Clare Pollard reads four poems from her latest Bloodaxe collection Changeling and talks about the book. Steeped in folktale and ballads, Changeling takes on our myths and monsters, from the Pendle witch-trials in 17th-century Lancashire to modern-day London and Iraq. The poems are 'Tam Lin's Wife', 'Pendle', 'The Two Ravens' and 'The Caravan'. Neil Astley filmed Clare Pollard at her home in London in June 2011.
