Gillian Clarke really needs no introduction, she is an award winning poet, translator and lecturer who has released over a dozen collections and her work has been translated into ten languages. She regularly tours Britain and is the president of Tŷ Newydd, the national writing centre of Wales. In May Gillian’s celebrated tenure as National Poet of Wales came to an end and since then she has toured with Jackie Kay, Carol Ann Duffy & Imtiaz Dharker and continues to tirelessly support GCSE PoetryLive.
The Gull is both flattered and ecstatic to be able to bring you one of her poems which displays all the poetic intuition, structural sensitivity, power and intellectual depth that is so consistent in Gillian’s work. Enjoy!
Gillian will be reading from her selected poems at the Cheltenham festival on Wednesday Oct. 12. more details @ http://www.cheltenhamfestivals.com/literature/whats-on/2016/gillian-clarke-and-alison-brackenbury/
