‘O Happy Living Things!’ Learning to love our world with Coleridge and other poets – a talk by Malcolm Guite

Beginning with Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s prophetic and ecological tale The Rime of the Ancient Mariner and then looking more widely at other poets, as part of Shoreham Wordfest, Malcolm Guite explores how poetry can help transform our attitude to ecology.

Malcolm is a poet, singer-songwriter, author, Anglican priest, and academic. He is a charismatic speaker and performer with a deep love and knowledge of poetry.  His latest book, Mariner, is an interpretation and celebration of Coleridge’s famous poem.

There will be pre-event music and bar from 7pm, and an interval.
