Hay Player

Simon Mundy and Deryn Rees-Jones

Seren Poetry Reading

Hay Festival 2013, 

Mundy’s new collection More For Helen Of Troy is suffused with the atmosphere of the landscapes that inspire him and is also deeply involved with many questions of desire: for the ideal of a beautiful woman; for the hope of a good state; and for the vision of a pristine country and seaside. Rees-Jones’ Burying The Wren (shortlisted for the TS Eliot Prize) is an intensely lyrical collection of poems of the body, which are alive to the world and the transformative qualities of love.
