John James / Ian Heames Poetry Reading, Introduced by J.H. Prynne, Monday 21 November

As part of the Faculty’s display of the work of J.H. Prynne, John James will be reading his new work *On Reading J.H. Prynne’s Sub Songs* on Monday, 21 November at 7pm in the Judith E. Wilson Studio, English Faculty (9 West Road, Sidgwick Site).

John James’ first published work ‘Mmm…Ah, Yes’ appeared in 1967, and his work has been a key part of experimental practice in Cambridge and the UK, and beyond, since that time. He will be reading from a new collection responding to J.H. Prynne’s Sub Songs (Barque Press, 2010), also on display in the Faculty, and featuring artwork by Bruce McLean.

J.H. Prynne will provide a short introduction to James’ work.

Ian Heames is a poet and publisher, as well as current PhD candidate, based in Cambridge and Oxford. His ongoing project ‘Sonnets’, written over the past few years, continues now into its fifteenth, or perhaps sixteenth, book.

Please join us from 6pm for wine in the Faculty display space, and for the reading beginning at 7pm.

This poetry reading is organised by Ryan Pepin, a current PhD candidate in the Faculty of Modern and Medieval Languages, University of Cambridge.
