A Reading of The Cantos of Ezra Pound: Beginnings
Thu 2 February 2017, 18:00 – 19:00 GMT
This afternoon with The Cantos of Ezra Pound is the first event out of a series of five, dedicated to reading from this long poem in 117 cantos. It is the poem of a lifetime, as Pound wrote it over a period of 50 years, between 1915 and 1969. We start with the beginning: the first eight cantos, composed during and after the First World War. Actor Paul Cunningham will read from these and make gods, heroes, troubadours, warriors and modern poets come to life.
Join us at the Poetry Library on 2 February at 6 pm for an afternoon of poetry, wine and discussion.
