One of the Summer People


This year, Judy Brown has immersed herself in the history of Grasmere through conversations with local residents and explorations of the Wordsworth library.

A number of poems in this pamphlet take quotes from the Wordsworths, or from artefacts in the collection and exhibitions as their starting point. All these poems are united in their attempt to capture the essence of a place, to put a finger on what it means to be “foreground flicker/ in this place of deep time”.
