Blake Morrison's Desert Island Poems (in no particular order) were: Dockery and Son (Philip Larkin), Daffodils (Ted Hughes), Marked with a D (Tony Harrison), Filling Station (Elizabeth Bishop), Touch (Tom Gunn), The Skunk (Seamus Heaney) and In the Time of "The Breaking of Nations" (Thomas Hardy).
The public vote went to Snow (Louis MacNeice), followed by Dover Beach (Matthew Arnold), Fern Hill (Dylan Thomas), The Sunne Rising (John Donne), Prayer (Carol Ann Duffy), Dulce et Decorum est (Wilfred Owen) and Daddy (Sylvia Plath).
All the poems were beautifully performed by Eva, Ian and Simon from Live Canon, and their director, Helen Eastman, dialogued with Blake Morrison about his and the public choices.
