Your list has always been interesting, idiosyncratic, imaginative and your translations [...] have been a source of pleasure to me.

Martina Evans: Ledbury Poetry Festival

Monday 5 Jul 2021, 20:00 to 21:00



Billy Collins and Martina Evans, host Jonathan Edwards 8pm - 9pm, Zoom, £5

Billy Collins's thirteenth collection, Whale Day, and first in four years, contains more fifty-five never-before-published poems that showcase the playfulness, wit, and wisdom that have made him one of our most celebrated and widely read poets. This collection covers many themes and moods, including Collins's insights on the wonders of life and thrill of mortality.

Martina Evans's new collection, American Mules ranges across various locations: England, Ireland and America. Humorous and narrative poems explore American cinema and personal and invented experiences, awash with hospitals, cats and shoes. 'Her work is humane and funny, often beautiful, always without sentiment or bitterness' (The Irish Times).
