Poetry reading by Michael Edwards

Michael Edwards is the only Englishman ever to have been elected to the Académie Française, to which he was inducted in 2014. While holding a chair at the Collège de France (2002-2013), he produced a stream of books in French on Shakespeare and on English poetry more generally, but also on such topics as émerveillement (marvelling) and happiness, in literature, art and music. Prior to that, while he was Professor of English at Warwick, he had published three books in English exploring the spiritual aspects of poetry. A recent book, in French, is Bible et poésie (2016).
