Charles Causley:
The Man and his Books

Poet, playwright, essayist, critic – these were  just some of the talents of Charles Causley, one of the finest  poets of the second half of the twentieth century.

Barry Newport, Causley’s bibliographer, returns to the Festival  with a wide-ranging talk, charting  Causley’s  rise to prominence through the publication history of his principal   titles. It will also include some of  his  lesser known works,  his support of other West Country writers,  his literary work for the BBC and, of course, a story or two along the way.

Barry Newport is a retired GP with a  passion for books and Literature all his  adult life. He has contributed to  numerous journals, including  the British Medical Journal (in the field of  Medical Humanities), English, and The Thomas Hardy Society Journal, and he has spoken twice at the Thomas Hardy Conference and at the Causley Festival in 2015.

He  published an article and a select  bibliography in Causley at Seventy (1987), and edited A Hand and Flower Anthology, (a celebration of the Hand and Flower Press), in 1980.
