A Poet's Music

Wed 5 Feb 2020

If we think of meter as kin to the metronome, the line-ending suitor to a singer’s signature phrasing, it becomes clear that poetry has always danced with music. A Poet’s Music celebrates this relationship unashamedly, bringing together two of the world’s finest contemporary poets – Lannan Foundation Fellow, Nathalie Handal and Dylan Thomas Prizewinner, Kayo Chingonyi – to share their work and have a conversation around music and what it means to them and their poetry. The event will open with music chosen by the writers, played as the door is opened to the audience. Arrive early to catch it all.
