December 21, 2009 | Events

In celebration of ‘Bright Star’, the new Vintage edition of Complete Poems and Selected Letters of John Keats, the Literary Consultancy at the Free Word Centre, provided an intimate evening of poetry and music.

Ben Whishaw and Abbie Cornish,  stars of Jane Campion’s new film Bright Star, read a selection of Keats’ poems and letters in a soul-warming setting. Mark Bradshaw, the film’s composer, performed with a small ensemble, recreating the haunting music from the film’s soundtrack.
