Event Information

Letchworth poet Gareth Writer-Davies reveals the genesis of his collection BODIES and will read from and sign copies of his book.

Thursday 16 April 2015
7:30 pm

We are pleased to be holding the launch of Gareth Writer-Davies's poetry  pamphlet  BODIES.

" ‘The body is the great poem’ says Wallace Stevens. Following Stevens’ advice, these poems truly inhabit the body, inspecting various elements of the human body with wit, insight, productive curiosity, and assurance..... These poems do indeed ‘sing the body electric’ in poems that are fresh, exciting and immediate" Penelope Shuttle

"You’ll find that you, too, will begin to step into what he sees of the world of bodies, inside and out. He can build something magical from the ordinary ‘stuff of life’, bones, skin, bacteria, love. This poet understands duende."  Geraldine Green

"The poems in Bodies....have the beauty of viscera: rich, vital, and gleaming. In this pamphlet the world of the flesh is elevated, granted the transcendence of art. This pamphlet reminds us that the body is, in truth, the medium for all art; 'For breast milk and intestinal mucosa we give thanks'. Read it and rejoice in the blunt wonder of living."
Bethany W Ron Pope​

£2 per ticket from David's Bookshop or on the door or 07787 568479.
