Helen Dunmore reads two poems from IN PERSON: 30 POETS filmed by Pamela Robertson-Pearce: 'Wild strawberries' and 'Glad of these times'. Pamela Robertson-Pearce has been filming poets reading their work for Bloodaxe's archive and DVD-books. We will be posting further films of individual poets. We are also showing a 45-minute film (featuring 20 poets from the IN PERSON archive reading their work) at various independent cinemas, arts festivals and other venues around Britain and Ireland this year. These two poems by Helen Dunmore are from her books OUT OF THE BLUE: POEMS 1975-2001 (Bloodaxe Books, 2001) and GLAD OF THESE TIMES (Bloodaxe Books, 2007). Helen Dunmore is best-known as a novelist, but she had published four poetry collections with Bloodaxe before her first novel appeared in 1993. We filmed her at her home in Bristol in 2007.
