Date: Friday 6th October
Location: The Parish Hall
Beyond Eden Rock: CL Dallat on Charles Causley.
Appointed Causley Trust centenary poet/musician-in-residence in the former Cornwall home of poet, Charles Causley (1917-2003), poet Cahal Dallat has spent a year rediscovering Causley not simply as a poet of faith, or war, or schoolyard rhymes, but as one whose everyday life, revealed through the poems, parallels, surprisingly, Cahal’s own life and poetry. Cahal will read and talk about both his and Charles Causley’s poems, with their takes on small town life, schooldays, family, neighbours, and of the early death of one parent, a recurring theme in both their poetry worlds.
