War Music is an account of Books 16 to 19 of Homer's Iliad.
In this series, a contemporary poet advocates a poet of the past or present whom they have particularly admired.
By their selection of verses and by the personal and critical reactions they express, the selectors - in this case, Christopher Logue - offer intriguing insight into their own work.
