Synopsis
Poets at Bush House seeks to draw attention to a comparatively little known aspect of English cultural life, the BBC World Service, at a time when it is about to leave its historic home on The Strand. The initial aim was to produce a book that would represent a substantial selection of the many languages in which the BBC broadcasts from Bush House (by the end of World War II the Corporation was already broadcasting in forty-five languages). As well as representing work by a few of the notable writers formerly associated with the service, the anthology also includes contributions by some currently at Bush House, including translations by David Constantine, Michael Scammel, Sasha Dougdale and Zinovy Zinik.
