> Two new poems by Tim Saunders
Cast in a wide range of poetic forms, Saunder’s work is varied in mood and theme, moving from the lyrical and intimate to meditations on war and explorations of the history and culture of Cornwall. This collection contains most of Saunders’ poetry in Cornish to date. The poems are accompanied by the author’s own prose translations into English, giving the reader with no knowledge of Cornish a strong sense of the power of his writing.
Tim Saunders is one of the leading poets writing in Cornish today. He is the author of poetry and jounalism in Welsh, Irish and Breton as well as Cornish and he is the editor of The Wheel – an anthology of modern poetry in Cornish 1850–1980. He is a bard of the Cornish Gorseth.
