Menai Bridge launch for Steve Griffiths’ ‘Weathereye: Selected Poems’

17 May 2019

The second launch of Steve Griffiths’ Weathereye: Selected Poems will be in Menai Bridge at the Victoria Hotel, Tuesday 4 June, 7.30 p.m.

A poet out of Trearddur Bay and Amlwch – then London, Spain, Ludlow. And from all this, a half-imagined place, a transformed village that became a great power, a fitful, flickering Utopia: al-Chwm.

Growing up slowly. Growing up again. Poems of being alive and conscious. Perhaps above all, a long quest to understand what’s going on round here: the nature and fragilities of community against a backdrop of the deep changes that are shaping us and challenging our beliefs. Veins of loss, resistance to injustice, commemoration, self-questioning. Lived landscape, interrogated history. Learning how to celebrate and lament. And the Late Love Poems. Learning, sometimes, a lightness of touch and a mischievous glint.
