Fierce Light poetry exhibition

May 10, 2016, 12:00 AMMay 28, 2016, 12:00 AM EDT

For Fierce Light, leading poets from countries that participated in the First World War, including Yrsa Daley-Ward, Jackie Kay, Bill Manhire, Paul Muldoon, Daljit Nagra and Jo Shapcott, are each creating new works that endeavour to understand the incomprehensible, exploring contemporary events while also contemplating the First World War. These works will be presented alongside a series of specially commissioned short films, each made in response to the new poems and the themes raised within them. Fierce Light launches with an exhibition and a special live event featuring the poets during the City of Literature programme at Norfolk & Norwich Festival, before the poems and films are presented on radio, at other literary festivals and online.
