In "Driving to work with Brendan Kennelly", the poet's editor Neil Astley takes you on his daily commute through the Tarset Valley of Northumberland to the Bloodaxe office behind Highgreen Manor - in the company of Brendan Kennelly, reading and talking about five of his poems: "The Visitor", "Poem from a Three Year Old", "I see You Dancing, Father", "My Dark Fathers" and "Begin". The readings are from the CD which comes with "The Essential Brendan Kennelly", the 75th birthday selection edited by Terence Brown and Michael Longley, published in 2011 by Bloodaxe Books in Britain and Ireland, and by Wake Forest University Press in the USA. The additional footage of Brendan reading is by Pamela Robertson-Pearce, from the DVD-anthology "In Person: 30 Poets" (Bloodaxe Books, 2008), edited by Neil Astley, which has six hours of readings filmed by Pamela of 30 poets from around the world on two DVDs which come with the anthology (which includes the texts of all the poems read on the films). Pamela's film of Brendan was made in Boston, Massachusetts, in September 2007, when he had a fellowship at Boston College. Neil's Tarset road movie was filmed in September 2011. The audio recordings were all made at Trinity College Dublin, the first four in 1999 and the last one in 2002. Bloodaxe has published all of Brendan Kennelly's poetry for the past 25 years.
