"And death shall be no more, Death thou shalt die."
Vivian Bearing is a professor of 17th century poetry, specialising in the Holy Sonnets of John Donne. She is well used to exploring life and death, but now it's her life and death in question, and she's running out of time. Diagnosed with terminal cancer, Vivian talks us through her last days and weeks, sharing a wry smile at the world and seeking, always seeking, to unravel the mystery, explain the poem.
Emotional, amusing and ultimately uplifting, 'Wit' is a must-see for anyone who has ever asked the life/death question.
