Poetry, Portraits, Sound, Place: Sarah Neely on Margaret Tait
Sun 23 October 2016, 16:15 – 17:15 BST
Orcadian poet, painter and filmmaker, Margaret Tait (1918-1999) was one of Britain's most unique and individual film makers and most under-appreciated poets, whose influences included Lorca, Lowry, Rilke, Pound, Emily Dickinson, and Hugh MacDiarmid. In her new book, Between Categories: The Films of Margaret Tait - Poetry, Portraits, Sound and Place, Sarah Neely, Lecturer at the University of Stirling, reappraises Tait’s poetry and portraits, her sounds and vital place in both Scottish letters and cinematic history.
