The Book of Hours - Sample Poems from Poetry Collection (open access)
datasetposted on 22.01.2021, 14:25 by Lucy English
The Book of Hours is a contemporary re-imagining of a medieval book of hours. These were collections of exquisitely hand-illustrated religious readings and accompanying images. They were created in a handy size so they could be carried by the owner and read on a daily basis. This book of hours is secular but the general mood is contemplative and reflective. The poems can be read individually or as a story of growth and change throughout a year. The project is a combination of a collection of written poems and a film poem project, where each of the poems was made into a poetry film in collaboration with international filmmakers, which resulted in a website where the poetry films can be viewed by the public.
This item contains a sample selection of poems from the full collection, The Book of Hours, by Lucy English, published by Burning Eye Press.
