Date: Friday 2nd June 2017
Readings and Reflections
Rory Waterman’s Belonging and Estrangement in the Poetry of Philip Larkin, R. S. Thomas and Charles Causley (Ashgate/Routledge, 2014) and Poets of the Second World War (Writers and their Work, 2016) are two of the most important books to be published about Charles’s work.
But Rory is a poet in his own right, and his debut collection, Tonight the Summer's Over (Carcanet, 2013) was a PBS Recommendation and was shortlisted for the Seamus Heaney Prize.
His second is forthcoming from Carcanet in the autumn.
He co-edits New Walk magazine, and is Senior Lecturer in English at Nottingham Trent University.

Charles Causley Festival
The historic town of Launceston welcomes you to the Charles Causley Festival.
Almost certainly Launceston’s most famous son, Charles Causley is recognised as one of the greatest poets the nation ever had.
Join us in early June to celebrate the very best in the fields of literature and the performing arts.
