100 Years of The Wasteland

THURS 17 NOV / 4.30–8PM / OPEN EYE GALLERY

REGISTER HERE

(FREE TO DROP IN THROUGHOUT THE EVENING)

My nerves are bad tonight. Yes, bad. Stay with me.

Speak to me. Why do you never speak. Speak.

What are you thinking of? What thinking? What?

I never know what you are thinking. Think.

Come and join us in a collective reading of T.S.Eliot’s The Wasteland. We also welcome musicians who want to play a piece in celebration or response to the poem.

Open Eye Gallery is actively rethinking what a gallery can be. We invite you to get involved in a celebration of voices.

Come and join us on 17 November to take part in a shared reading of The Wasteland or to read your own poem that is inspired by T.S.Eliot’s modernist masterpiece.

Are you a reader of poetry?

Do you like to read aloud?

Are you part of a community group that would like to celebrate this poem together?

It is 100 years since this seminal work was published. T.S.Eliot’s long poem mixes voices, texts and reflects on themes of language, post-war alienation, death, and loss.

To read the poem follow this link: https://www.poetryfoundation.org/poems/47311/the-waste-land

To hear the poem being read by Alec Guinness follow this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hcj4G45F9pw

The celebration will open with readings of poems inspired by The Wasteland as well as music. We will also share a digital display of photography that responds to its themes and ideas.

 

To book a reading slot, and for more information about how you can get involved, contact Pauline Rowe: pauline@openeye.org.uk
