Event Details

Two giants on one bill. Robert Wrigley, whose most recent book, The Church of Omnivorous Light, is published in the UK by Bloodaxe, is one of America’s greatest living poets, an acute and unsentimental observer of a natural world he finds both beautiful and brutal. As influenced by Keats as it is by Wallace Stevens, Wrigley’s writing embodies his belief poetry should reach beyond the confines of academia as it stretches to ‘tell all the truth, but make it sing’. John Burnside, who has also written penetratingly about the natural world, is one of only two poets to have won both the T.S. Eliot and Forward Prizes with the same collection (Black Cat Bone, Jonathan Cape).
