Billy Collins (2014 Event)

Billy Collins has twice been poet laureate in the US and says he hopes his poems ‘begin in Kansas and end in Oz’. Aimless Love, his first collection of new and selected poems for 12 years, is elegant, poignant and thrillingly accessible. In this event, recorded live at the 2014 Edinburgh International Book Festival, Collins performs his deeply inspiring poems with great élan.
