Durham University, U.K. is hosting “With Sleights Learned from Others: Basil Bunting and Friends,” July 4-5 at St. John’s College. Bunting wrote in the preface to his collected poems: “With sleights learned from others and an ear open to melodic analogies I have set down words as a musician pricks his score, not to be read in silence, but to trace in the air a pattern of sound that may sometimes, I hope, be pleasing.”¬†Participants include Tom Pickard (author of Ballad of Jamie Allan and The Dark Months of May, among others) and Don Share (editor of Bunting’s Persia). The full program can be found here.
