Cecil Day-Lewis was arguably one of the most notable Anglo Irish poets of the 20th century, but some say he has been overlooked since his death in 1972 at the age of 68.
The Bodleian Library is hoping to change that - it is launching a one day event to celebrate receiving a gift: an archive of Cecil Day-Lewis papers which has been donated to the library by the poet's children Tamasin and Daniel.
Speaking to the Today programme, Tamasin Day-Lewis said: "I think his work will live on. If you've written half a dozen poems that speak to the heart of people, it distills an essence. And ultimately that's what poets do, they distill truths."
