Past Poets

Piloted in 2005, these events have proved hugely popular. The Past & Present series generally features two poets (appearing in their own right elsewhere in the festival). Each talks about a nominated poet from the past, touching on their enthusiasm for the work and any personal connections, including selected readings. Poets of the past are also present in other ways during the festival: in performances, as the subject of talks, on film and as illustrations in workshops, and on Poetry Walks around St Andrews.
