Daughter and two other poems by Emily Hinshelwood

“This is an animation of my poem Daughter which I wrote after visiting the Old Point pub near Angle in Pembrokeshire,” writes Welsh poet and playwright Emily Hinshelwood in the description at Vimeo.

As a bonus, here’s Hinshelwood reading two poems for poetryvlog.com, “Lady Cave Anticline” and “And whan all else fails.” The audio quality isn’t great, but her readings make up for it. As a bit of a geology geek, I especially like the first.

Lament by Dylan Thomas

Poet: | Nationality: , | Filmmaker:

Swoon is at it again with a compelling contrast of public and private moods.

Based on the poem ‘Lament’ by Dylan Thomas (read by himself)
The lament for (his) decay together with the lament for growing protests (Prague 68 – Cairo 11) against the positive growth in nature. Everything in life evolves…hopefully for the best.

Welsh Landscape by R. S. Thomas

Poet: | Nationality: , | Filmmaker:

A poem by the great 20th-century Welsh poet R. S. Thomas. Documentary filmmaker Robin Davies-Rollinson writes on the Vimeo page,

I shot some footage in Ceredigion, West Wales, earlier this week — and all the time, I was hearing in my mind R S Thomas’s poem “Welsh Landscape.”
…so here it is, with the voice of the poet himself.
