Three new poems in The High Window



'Three stories from Gerald of Wales'  taken from his prose 'Journey through Wales'.  I've known the first one for a long time. It would make a fine grim TV episode....with a bit of scrolling you can read them here:

All three are taken from the forthcoming 'A Presentment of Englishry' which will be published by Shearsman in the UK in March 2019.

The range of translations in this issue of The High Window, ably curated by Jo Balmer, is worth a visit, especially if, like me, you don't know much about classical poetry. The selection includes Lesley Saunders 'Praise song for a pair of earings' which I enthused about earlier on this blog.
