Being Human – John Maytham
To be human is to experience love, war, loss, joy, suffering and grief. Being human means being vulnerable, strong, funny, enraged, anxious and confused. Above all, it involves a quest for meaning. Drawing on a range of poets from Billy Collins to Jane Kenyon, Dylan Thomas to Elizabeth Bishop, John Maytham reads poetry that reflects the many facets of our humanity in a script compiled by Finuala Dowling.
