Stories and Poems

Tue, 24/02/2015 - 7:30pm

Anne Gullo lead this meeting which was something different for the group.  There is a long history of the story and verse being linked together.  Many early poems were ‘narrative poems’ telling a story in verse – most Anglo-Saxon and Celtic poetry that has survived is of this sort. 

Many favourite poems such as ‘The Ancient Mariner’ are stories in verse. 

This was a chance to tell a short story or read a short ‘narrative poem’ or read part of a longer poem.
