Poetry Landmarks

Mowbray Park, Sunderland

 

(Public Art)

Details:

Mowbray Park includes poems on wood. stone and iron, poems written by poet-in-residence Linda France, poems written by Lewis Carroll (a frequent visitor) and poems by nearly 100 local people (on plaques on benches). The poetry responds to Mowbray Park now, in 2004, as well as taking into account how we arrived here, since the Park was first built in the mid-nineteenth century. All the different words in different settings 'talk' to each other and the Park itself becomes part of the conversation of the poem.
