A Synæsthetic Poetry Reading by Moira Egan

10 May. The Keats Shelley House hosts A Synæsthetic Poetry Reading by Rome-based American poet Moira Egan on Thursday 10 May at 18.30. 
Winner of The New Criterion Poetry Prize, Synæsthesium is an unusual exploration of ekphrasis—poetry that takes a real or imagined work of art as its muse. 

The first half of the book, Olfactorium, is inspired by various fragrances and the olfactory flashbacks—real or imagined—induced by them. From everyday Old Spice to exotic Casbah, the poems take the reader on journeys peppered with the luscious language of perfumery. 

The second part, Love and Work, is based on the artwork of Suzanne Valadon, the bold and unconventional model-turned-painter who was one of the great and under-appreciated artists of the Impressionist era.

Advance booking is necessary. For full event details see Keats Shelley House website.
