Poetry Gala: Senses of Place with Sean Borodale, Deryn Rees-Jones, Michael Symmons Roberts and Jean Sprackland
- Mon 02 Jun 2014
- 6:00 pm
In this special event, we will hear from four leading poets – Sean Borodale, Deryn Rees-Jones, Jean Sprackland and Michael Symmons Roberts – who have imaginatively engaged with a diverse range of landscapes: from the CCTV-monitored streets of central London to the non-place of the central reservation of the East Lancs Road; from the liminal edgelands of Manchester and Liverpool to the Romantic uplands of the Wordsworthian Lake District. ‘Senses of Places’ will take us on imaginative journeys across a range of topographies and through the body; poetry will remind us that perhaps we need to think about the rich plurality of ‘senses of place’ rather than a rigidily fixed ‘sense of place’.
