DRINKS WITH DEAD POETS
A SPECIAL STAGE PRESENTATION OF GLYN MAXWELL’S CELEBRATED NOVEL
GLYN MAXWELL, poet, playwright, librettist and lecturer, is himself the central character of his celebrated novel, DRINKS WITH DEAD POETS. He will lead a fine cast of characters in this staged recital/reading adapted especially for POETRY LONDON.
It’s the autumn term: tutoring students in poetry in a mysterious village, Glyn’s world is transformed by the arrival of Keats in a country lane; Emily Dickinson and other poets soon follow on their way to give readings in the humble village hall. And everything they say – in class, on stage, at the Cross Keys pub – comes verbatim from their diaries, essays, or letters.
