Words Within Worlds Pt.1

Geoffrey Summerfield (ed.)
Penguin Education
Harmondsworth, Middx. 1974

This is a great photopoetry book, combining seven poets with specially commissioned photography. I'm going to post a few of these sets in due course, beginning with Cornish poet Charles Causley (1917-2003) and photographer Fay Godwin (1931-2005).

"Just giving the cat a quick polish"

The Focus Group sample recordings of Causley poems to great affect on several tracks: 'Keats at Teignmouth - Spring 1818' on Salty Sun Tales, from the album Hey Let Loose Your Love (Ghostbox Records, 2005), and 'I Am The Great Sun' on You Do Not See Me, from the album We Are All Pan's People (Ghostbox Records, 2007).
