Desert Island Poems
James Dean Bradfield has selected his eight Desert Island Poems for the 2020 Seren Cardiff Poetry Festival. This pamphlet gathers together those poems, by John Burnside, Gillian Clarke, Emily Dickinson, Rhian Edwards, Emyr Humphreys, Patrick Jones, John Ormond and Rabindranath Tagore, for those not fortunate enough to make it to the festival. An avid, long term poetry reader, these are the poems and poets which have had a particular significance in James' life.
Profits from the pamphlet will be donated to the Velindre Cancer Charity.
James Dean Bradfield is the songwriter, guitarist and vocalist with the Manic Street Preachers, one of the most influential bands from Wales (and the UK) in the last thirty years. He has also made a solo recording career, and has produced a range of musicians.
