Over more than 20 years, the American poet Jackson Mac Low composed his ‘Light Poems’, using a chart of 288 words for light. Twenty contemporary poets have responded to this chart, creating their own works, which will be performed here for the first time and published in an anthology available on the day. Anthology edited by James Wilkes.
