For Virginia Woolf and Thomas Hardy, Charlotte Mew (1869- 1928) was the finest woman poet of the era. Drawing on a wealth of previously unseen materials – including letters, photographs, household and medical records, diaries and the testimonies of friends – award­ winning poet Julia Copus animates the myriad factors that went into firing Mew’s extraordinary imagination, and in so doing confirms the relevance and power that her work has today.

Julia Copus will also read from her phenomenal new collection, Girlhood, her first in seven years. There are autobiographical pieces, poems of history and imagination and, in The Great Unburned, there are witches overhead. ‘Her technical dexterity and way of seeing the past afresh reap rich dividends’ (The Guardian).
