Celebration, fist-waving, leave-taking and wake, this should be a stormer, showing in spades the strength of the team OUP has cast out. Participating poets include Jon Stallworthy, Jo Shapcott, Craig Raine, Alice Oswald, Stephen Romer, Hugo Williams, Anne Stevenson, Charles Tomlinson and Tobias Hill (above). TV's renaissance man Tom Paulin, and Oxford Professor of Poetry James Fenton lend their weight to read on behalf of the absent and dead, including Edward Thomas, Keith Douglas and Andrei Voznesensky.
