Templar Poetry Festival: Reading Films/Reading Poems Seminar
Sun 27 August 2017, 13:30 – 15:00 BST
Paul Maddern will use Jane Campion’s Bright Star as a basis for comparing and contrasting the process of reading a film with that of reading a poem – especially in relation to passive and active engagement with art forms by readers and observers . The workshop will read poems inspired by specific films and discuss the use of the moving image as the natural development of the Ekphractic tradition - the graphic and often dramatic, verbal description of a visual work of art, either real or imagined.
*This event is part of the Templar Poetry Festival. In a first event of its kind, Keats House will be hosting a festival to celebrate the publications and poets of Templar Poetry, an independent publisher championing high-quality, modern poetry. Listen to pop-up readings throughout the day at Keats House and browse beautifully-crafted titles in the festival bookshop. The readings and bookshop are included in admission to the museum (open from 11am - 5pm), workshops and talks are charged separately.
