A collective of bibliophiles talking about books. Book Fox (vulpes libris): small bibliovorous mammal of overactive imagination and uncommonly large bookshop expenses. Habitat: anywhere the rustle of pages can be heard.
Welcome to Vulpes Libris’ 7th Annual Poetry Week! We continue our tradition of spotlighting an often under-appreciated literary form. This year’s spring time salute ranges from rural life to Shakespeare and many subjects in between, with the Foxes sharing personal stories and meaningful moments sparked by verse. We hope you’ll join us in our annual celebration of posies and poetry.
Monday- Kate reviews Killochries, the new long poem by Jim Carruth, on working a hill farm in the Highlands for a year.
Tuesday- Moira shares the story of the day she first discovered the work of the poet Norman Nicholson – on a wall.
Thursday- Jackie delves into The Poetry of Cats and finds it not quite what she was expecting.
Friday- Hilary is intrigued by an anthology of Shakespeare’s verse with a difference, selected from The Complete Works by Ted Hughes.
