Patrick Gale - Jim Causley

The Life of Charles Causley in Songs and Words

Venue: Public Hall

17 September 2022 5:30 pm

Join the novelist Patrick Gale (A Place Called Winter, Take Nothing With You) and Devon folksinger Jim Causley for an enchanting evocation of the great Cornish-Devonian poet, Charles Causley. Jim, a distant relation of Causley’s, will sing his song settings of Causley’s poems, as Patrick reads from his latest novel, Mother’s Boy, which tells the story of Causley’s early life. His close friend Ted Hughes said of Causley: ‘Among the English poetry of the last half century, Charles Causley’s could well turn out to be the best loved and most needed....this marvellously resourceful, original poet, yet among all known poets the only one who could be called a man of the people, in the old, best sense.’
