NWW 07 Session Four: Gwyneth Lewis
Gwyneth Lewis has two languages, Welsh and English. She started by reading a poem that employs both languages as a starting point to address notions of trespass, danger and movement in language. Her relationship to movement, exile and language, she said, was different to that explicated by George and Eva. She was going nowhere, geographically, she felt, but her language was moving away from her, was in decline.
