“Poetry is deep play. It’s comfort. It’s challenge. Just like a friend.”
Australia’s unofficial poet laureate Paul Kelly has spent a career putting words to – and making poetry of – our lives. In one night of performance and storytelling with some special guests, he reflects on the comfort of literature and the role the words of others have played in his work and career.
