Fleur Adcock reads two poems, 'Weathering' and 'Things', from the DVD-book IN PERSON: 30 POETS, filmed by Pamela Robertson-Pearce & edited by Neil Astley (Bloodaxe Books, 2008). Pamela has been filming poets reading their work for Bloodaxe's archive, website and DVD-books. These two poems are from Fleur Adock's POEMS 1960-2000 (Bloodaxe Books, 2000). Fleur Adcock is one of Britain's most accomplished poets. Born in New Zealand, she spent the war years in England, returning to her family to New Zealand in 1947. She emigrated back to Britain in 1963. She received an OBE in 1996 and the Queen's Gold Medal for Poetry in 2006. We filmed her at her home in London in 2007.
