Poetry can reconfigure the mind and change the world. Adam Nicolson tells us how two young men of genius, William Wordsworth and Samuel Taylor Coleridge, lived together in the Quantock Hills, producing subversive and astonishing works such as Kubla Khan, The Ancient Mariner, Lyrical Ballads and Tintern Abbey. He is joined by the artist Tom Hammick who produced the timeless and beautiful woodcuts that illustrate The Making of Poetry. In conversation with James Marriott of The Times with selected poetry readings from Alice Vellender.
