What Andrew Motion saysThank you

…for joining us in the very first Poetry By Heart competition, which I hope you’ll think, as we do, is a momentous thing in its way: a pioneering national competition designed to encourage pupils at school and college in England to learn and to recite poems by heart.  Not in an arm-waving, props-supported thespian extravaganza, but as the outward and audible manifestation of an inwardly-understood and enjoyed poem.
