FURSE Swann and Sue Theobald present a Celebration of Hardy’s love poems at Dorset County Museum on June 13 at 1pm.
One of the treasured manuscripts to be found at Dorset County Museum is that of Satires of Circumstance, Thomas Hardy’s fourth book of verse. At its centre are The Poems of 1912-13, a collection of poems about his first wife, Emma, who died in November 1912.
To celebrate the centenary of the poems, Furse Swann and Sue Theobald read the 21 poems that make up the sequence, with the performance of some of the tunes from the Hardy music books, played on fiddles by Lorraine Tillbrook and Elspeth Gracie.
Admission is free but a donation of £3 is encouraged to cover costs. There is no need to book.
