Gwyneth Lewis Quantum Poetics: Bloodaxe Poetry Lectures & Reading:
Gwyneth Lewiss lectures explore the connection linking form and politics with the content of poetry while exploring how each of these changes our understanding of time. She argues that the poet steers a path between making music and making sense not at the level of the line, but in the deep structures of meaning which are poetrys terrain. The accuracy of what they say is just as important as its expression, both for their own well-being and for its worth to the reader. Taken together, her lectures begin to posit not the science in poetry but a science of the art form. Gwyneth Lewis was Waless National Poet from 2005 to 2006. Her first six books of poetry in Welsh and English were followed by Chaotic Angels (2005) from Bloodaxe, which brings together the poems from her English collections and Sparrow Tree (2011), winner of the Roland Mathias Poetry Award (Wales Book of the Year) in 2012. Gwyneth is a Fellow of the Welsh Academy, a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature and a NESTA Awardee.
