Gwyneth Lewis reads two poems from IN PERSON: 30 POETS filmed by Pamela Robertson-Pearce: 'Welsh Espionage' [V] and 'Mother Tongue'. 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 Gwyneth Lewis are from CHAOTIC ANGELS: POEMS IN ENGLISH (Bloodaxe Books, 2005). Gwyneth Lewis was made National Poet of Wales in 2005, the first writer to be given the Welsh laureateship. She is a bilingual virtuoso, and has published three collections in Welsh and four in English. The two poems included in the film relate to her bilingualism.
