The Welsh landscape is a shaping force in her work, together with recurrent themes of war, womanhood and the passage of time. Listening to a Gillian Clarke poem is an intensely sensual experience; her use of language ‘concrete as it is musical’ (Times Literary Supplement) and the patterning of rhyme and alliteration combine to give the impression of a poem as an almost physical object…

LDSM welcomes Gillian Clarke, National Poet of Wales 2008-2016, to read her work as a preface to her text for I Fagiolini’s event tomorrow night.

Present your Blackwell concert ticket at the Arts & Crafts House ticket desk on the day of the event and get £2 off the admission price to the House.
