Two Poets & A Bargain With The Light
Swindon Festival of Literature
Sun 13 May
TWO POETS: the last work of SEBASTIAN BARKER and the latest by HILARY DAVIES.
Sebastian Barker (1945 – 2014), with thirteen volumes of poetry and three collections of essays to his name, was the first author to appear at the first Swindon Festival of Literature, in May 1994. He liked what he saw in Swindon. When funding was low and uncertainty high, it was Sebastian who said, ‘This Festival can fly!’ Today, we remember him by presenting poems from his last collection, Land of Gold.
Hilary Davies, who was married to Sebastian, is a translator, critic, and author of four collections of poetry, the latest of which is Exile and the Kingdom.
A Bargain With The Light: Poems after Lee Miller with Jacqueline Saphra.
