News at Eleven: Poetry can give what Robert Frost

calls "a fresh look and a fresh listen", but a poem's clarity does not always transmit equally to everyone, and I wanted to make the political point clear--that human migration is part of animal migration, and migration has been part of life on this earth from the start. Life began with migration, and millions of human beings are doing it today as humans always have done. But it's not always voluntary.

from The Guardian: Ruth Padel: 'Poetry has a responsibility to look at the world'
