Exclusive video interview with Deryn Rees-Jones.
Exclusive video interview with Deryn Rees-Jones. Poet Edward Thomas’ wife and biographer Helen is the muse for her collection, And You, Helen
. Our interview includes Deryn’s reading from the book and from Thomas’ original poem which inspired it. She is filmed visiting Helen’s Liverpool birthplace and explaining the fissures and contradictions of marriage between ‘creatives’, the grief of war widows and her feminist take on the high-handed aspects of Thomas’ poem, the only one of his directed to his wife. Our multimedia programme is sponsored by Aberystwyth University. Part of NWR’s winter interview season.
