‘O Happy Living Things’ – Malcolm Guite
Beginning with Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s prophetic and ecological tale The Rime of the Ancient Mariner and then looking more widely at other poets, Malcolm Guite explores how poetry can help transform our attitude to ecology. Malcolm is a poet, singer-songwriter, author, Anglican priest, and academic. He is a charismatic speaker and performer with a deep love and knowledge of poetry. His latest book, Mariner, is an interpretation and celebration of Coleridge’s famous poem. There will be pre-event music and bar from 7pm, and an interval.
