Date: Friday 2nd June 2017
Laurence Green & Armand Goulipian
Causley in Focus
Was one of Charles Causley’s poems inspired by a nineteenth century infanticide?
Laurence Green, Charles Causley’s biographer, will talk about one of his lesser known poems Infant Song, written fifty years ago.
He will reveal Causley’s mischievous sense of humour and his keen observation of the cultural events of the time as well as matters closer to home.
It will be great fun and slightly over the top.
Green’s biography of George Butterworth, outstanding composer and soldier, The War Gave Me Something to Do will be published by Fighting High in 2018.
Armand Goulipian will look some aspects of time in poetry with particular reference to the last two visitors in Causley's Ten Types of Hospital Visitor.
Very little is said about these two visitors but in fact they stand for two essential landmarks in everyone's existence: life and death.
Armand is one of Causley’s greatest international fans, and has impressed previous audiences with his insights and recitations.

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.
