Centre for Medical Humanities: Gwyneth Lewis Poetry Reading
Gwyneth Lewis will be reading from her epic poem A Hospital Odyssey, an outrageously imaginative voyage through illness and healing. Drawing on the most recent biomedical research into stem cells and cancer, the poem is a journey through the body's inner space and the strange habitats created by the disease, including the chimeras people see when they are unwell. Immensely readable, A Hospital Odyssey is a modern epic: Dr. Who meets Paradise Lost.
Gwyneth Lewis was Wales' National Poet from 2005 - 2006 and currently lives in Cardiff.
