Since it was first launched half a century ago by the esteemed W.H. Auden, Ilkley Literature Festival has proven a dedicated champion of poetry.

Now to mark its 50th year, some 100 author events are to be held over an incredible 17 days this month.

As well as a full poetry day, there are to be special events with poet laureate Simon Armitage, from Marsden, workshops with John Whale, and events with poets in residence. "The poem traces threads of influence found in Hughes’ work circling round Plath and stretching back to Blake and the Brontës."
