Former colleague McCully doing poetry reading in Chorlton

Posted on May 14, 2009 by


[Hat tip to McCully’s former advisee, Ricardo, for this.]

As part of this year’s Chorlton Arts Festival, our former colleague Chris McCully will be doing a poetry reading at the Chorlton Library on Friday 15 May at 7.30pm.

This will include a selection from his excellent collection of metrical translations _Old English Poems and Riddles_ (Carcanet, 2008). Many of you will be familiar with these wonderful works, which provide an astonishingly faithful recreation of the aural and structural experience of the Old English originals, whilst being supremely successful as poems in their own right.
