Love and death are the great poetic subjects. Emily Dickinson was a New England recluse whose poetry, largely unpublished in her life time, burns with passion for the eternal. Lyndall Gordon's new biography, Lives Like Loaded Guns: Emily Dickinson and Her Family's Feuds, reveals a drama of sex, scandal and betrayal. Christopher Reid's Costa Prize-winning poetry collection, A Scattering, consists of tender and wry elegies for his wife, Lucinda, whose death they record. Josephine Hart, poetry proselytiser, novelist and Chair of the Costa Judges, hosts a discussion of Dickinson's life and work and readings from A Scattering. Her latest novel is The Truth About Love.
