Charles Causley – a life through his poems
An illustrated talk by Malcolm and Sylvia Wright
Charles Causley famously said of his life – “it’s all in the poems”.
In this talk Malcolm Wright, author of the short biography “Charles Causley – A Universal Poet” examines the aspects of Causley’s life which influenced the poems he wrote – his childhood, war experiences, work as a teacher, spiritual beliefs, his love of Cornwall and Launceston and the years of travel.
Sylvia will read the poems, some well-known, some less so, and the talk will be illustrated with photographs, some of which have been rarely seen.
