Prize-winning Poet Charles Bennett: Cloud River
20th September, 2019 @ 7:00 am - 8:30 pm£10
Cloud River is a book of lyrical landscape poetry set in the Cambridgeshire Fens; a landscape which, at first impression, seems flat, dull and featureless. The startling originality of the book stems from its mission to revise and overturn these impressions. Through an examination of lines (on fields, maps, the sky and the page), it slowly but powerfully reveals the intrinsic interest, peculiarity and dynamism of the Fens and in its flowing music, exemplifies how a confrontation with level lands, straight rivers and big skies can result in a balancing of spirit and a fresh appreciation of England’s lowest and newest landscape. A light supper is included, and you may take your own drinks or purchase hot or soft drinks at the venue. Tickets £10 from the Oundle Box Office, 4 New Street, Oundle.
