This week on The Verb, Sophie Woolley performs two keenly observed, devastatingly witty monologues from her show When to Run; Fiona Sampson presents her poem The Furious Guide, a contemplation of quartets poetic and musical, written specially for the programme; and Steve Griffiths celebrates his return to writing after a long absence with a poem from his series about Al-Chwm, the mythical and imaginary town that's part memory, part vision.
Poet Fiona Sampson presents The Furious Guide, a new poem written specially for The Verb in which she contemplates the quartet as a poetic and musical form, from TS Eliot's contemplation of faith in Four Quartets to the personal and spiritual anguish Beethoven expressed in his Opus 131.
