Translating the past

Colonised by foreign invaders, forced to speak a new language, resisting a predatory ruling class — is this medieval England, or the modern Caribbean? Or both? Poet Patience Agbabi and novelist-scholar Barbara Lalla discuss how medieval authors like Chaucer relate to 21st-century Caribbean concerns; moderated by Nicholas Laughlin.
