Menna Elfyn reads her poem 'Handkerchief Kiss' / 'Cusan Hances' in English and the original Welsh from IN PERSON: 30 POETS filmed by Pamela Robertson-Pearce. The English translation of this poem is by Joseph P. Clancy. 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. This poem by Menna Elfyn is from her bilingual selection PERFFAITH NAM / PERFECT BLEMISH (Bloodaxe Books, 2007). Menna Elfyn is a poet and playwright who writes with passion of the Welsh language and Welsh identity. We filmed her in 2007 in the library at Ty Newydd, the National Writers' Centre for Wales which was once David Lloyd George's home.
