Indigo Dreams: Geraldine Green & Kerry Darbishire

Reviews

    Details

    We welcome Cumbrian based poets Geraldine Green and Kerry Darbishire, to take you on a journey of seasons, sounds and tastes from their new collections published this year by Indigo Dreams. In Passing Through, Green weaves together strands of autobiography, landscape and inward journeying – writing that interprets modern pastoral, elemental and contemporary in all its facets with sensuality and richness, poems that glimpse her part of this beautiful vulnerable planet. In Distance Sweet on my Tongue, Darbishire garners a past childhood heady with scent and colour, lost lives, rivers and mountains. She presents a meditative journey from Cumbria to Mallerstang Moors to Connemara and the shops of Milan, like striations caught in time, deftly unravelling them before your eyes.

    Full disabled access is available to the Wordsworth Museum. As Dove Cottage is an historic building, we have been unable to make provision for disabled access. However most wheelchairs will find the ground floor accessible and there is a virtual tour of the cottage available at the information point in the Wordsworth Museum.
