Madonna once said that we live in a material world, and we couldn’t be more guilty of that nearly two decades later. As you cue up another haul video, add a few more items to your cart, dust off your knick-knacks, or rearrange old memorabilia, tune in to this discussion about poetry as a kind of collecting. What do the objects we consume and surround ourselves with say something about us (even if your mum always calls them trash)?

This programme includes a live Q&A towards the end of the session.
