Ian McMillan presents Radio 3's Cabaret of the Word, with performances from spoken word artist Inua Ellams -whose show 'Black T-Shirt Collection' is on tour, and singer Cate Le Bon who's described her new album 'Cyrk' as a 'a time travelogue that continually hearkens back to the sea'.

Ian is also joined by Carrie Etter and Ira Lightman to celebrate the 80th anniversary of the death of American poet Hart Crane - and to explore the pleasures of 'difficult' poetry.
