Event Information

GOHORRY IN RESIDENCE

Sunday 11 December 2016
10.30 ONWARDS

Come and hear David’s Bookshop Poet in Residence John Gohorry read a selection of his published and unpublished poems in the shop throughout the day.

There will be RIDDLES, PANTOMIME VERSES, and some poems supposed to have been written by the 20 year old JOHANN SEBASTIAN BACH during his 250 MILE WALK to Lübeck AND BACK  in 1705-6 to hear Buxtehude playing the organ (no CD’s, no David’s Music, no Radio 3 in those days!)

John will also include some poems he imagines being exchanged between GOYA from inside the House of the Deaf Man outside Madrid, where he painted his BLACK PAINTINGS, and, under the name SCARDANELLI, the German poet HÖLDERLIN, from inside the tower in Tübingen, which took his name after he died there in 1843.

He’ll also be reading from his recently finished sequence THIRTY THREE OSTRICH CADENZAS, which follow the adventures and fates of seven birds freed from an ostrich farm in the town of Okuma, Japan following the Daiichi Nuclear Reactor meltdown in Fukushima, 11 March 2011.

 

ALTOGETHER AN INTERESTING VISIT TO THE SHOP IS GUARANTEED, WHETHER FOR FIVE MINUTES OR FOR LONGER.
