02nd April 2014
A new book of photographs and prose/poetry is now out:
Published 31st March 2014
Poet's Graves / Beddau'r Beirdd
When a poet dies, who, or what, has the last word? Is it the well-crafted elegy or epitaph on the gravestone? The poetry bequeathed by the deceased poet? Or is it the silence of the soil?
As the Welsh national anthem testifies, Wales continues to be a land of poets, and this new gazetteer of literary graves locates the respective final resting place of 71 of those poets, reminding us that the burial place is itself a part of each poet’s biography.
