  1. A machinima around the poetry of Edward Thomas, with an introduction by myself. Edward Thomas was born in London in 1878 to a mostly Welsh family. One of the foremost literary critics of his age, he turned to poetry in 1914 with the encouragement of Robert Frost. He could have avoided enlisting to the army, but still enlisted in 1915.

From the time that I discovered his poetry during 'O' level English around 1975, he has been a constant presence and and inspiration as a writer. In the first poem I write my own tribute to him (recognising that my work is a shadow of his), and three of his poems follow: 'The Bridge', 'How At Once' and 'In Memoriam (Easter 1915)' (Public domain). 'Speak softly, let your voice carry' is a post on my blog about this machinima.
