About the event
Fleur Adcock at the 23rd Aldeburgh Poetry Festival.
Fleur Adcock, Christian Campbell, Oliver Reynolds.
Three generations, three cultures. For over forty years
Fleur Adcock, originally from New Zealand, has balanced her
passionate concerns – relationships, identity, gender politics, the environment – with keen insight and wit. Bahamian Christian Campbell won the 2010 Aldeburgh First Collection Prize for ‘a bravura performance: energetic, fluid and musical poems – full of loss, hope and imagination.’ (Jo Shapcott). Welsh-born Oliver Reynolds traverses the divide between autobiographical and historical, comic and serious, lyric and narrative with insouciant aplomb. The winner of the 2011 Aldeburgh First Collection Prize will be announced at the start of this reading. Tickets £14. Call 01728 687110 or visit www.thepoetrytrust.org
