Poetry has been a source of consolation and solace, community and reflection since time immemorial. How does poetry provide healing and recovery? What can poetry do like no other art form? Or does framing poetry in this way suggest saccharine Hallmark nonsense? Four leading poets – Billy Letford, John Glenday, Clare Pollard and Tawona Sithole – dive in, sharing their own work and other poems which have healed their souls.
