Poems For Infant Minds

4.30-5.00pm BBC RADIO 4 Taking the anthology Original Poems For Infant Minds, by Ann and Jane Taylor, as his 19th-century starting point, Nigel Forde explores the wonderfully straightforward moralism of Victorian children’s verse. From poetry which provided “interesting material for the unfatiguing exercise of mind, from the state of infancy to that of adolescence”, he traces the journey to the anarchic upheavals of Robert Louis Stevenson, Lewis Carroll and Hilaire Belloc. In more recent times, there’s Dr Zeuss, Spike Milligan and Michael Rosen, and today’s young writers, using verse to thrill, inspire, mystify and amuse. But Nigel asks whether there is anything left of the clear moral message that the Taylor sisters pedalled so successfully.

That's a tall order for 30minutes - or is it a series?

No, he managed it in 30 minutes, and very well, too.

Poems For Infant Minds

It's repeated on BBC Radio 4 on Saturday at 11.30pm.
It's also available on the BBC Radio 4 Home page under Listen Again.

Stephen, was it a poem cycle that the Taylor sisters pedalled so successfully?

Best wishes from Henry
