Event description

Description

Join us for a special evening with Steven Matthews and Fiona Sampson, where they will be discussing their latest publications, and exploring poetry, place in history and the natural world.

Steven Matthews will be reading from his collection 'On Magnetism', featuring poems about loss and remembrance, about the relation of the Renaissance and the Classical worlds to our own, about locales within lives. These are poems about sounding the world, and about measuring our responses to it through its various musics. Steven will also be discussing his prose book reflecting upon Wordsworth, 'Ceaseless Music'.

Fiona Sampson will be reading from 'The Catch', a collection that transforms the sensory world into an astonishingly new and vivid poetry. Here, dream and myth, creatures real and imagined, and the sights and sounds of 'distance and of home' all coalesce in a sustained meditation on time and belonging. Fiona will also be exploring her prose work 'Limestone Country', a loveletter to landscape and geology.

Tickets for this event cost £3. Please note, this event will be starting at 7:15pm, with entry to the bookshop available at 7pm. For all enquiries please email events.oxford@blackwell.co.uk.
