JUN17th CHARLES CAUSLEY - By Malcolm and Sylvia Wright

MALCOLM and SYLVIA WRIGHT: career in Further Education. Developed the first website devoted to Causley before becoming Chairman of the Charles Causley Society and then Secretary of the Charles
Causley Trust. Both he and his wife Sylvia were heavily involved in the annual Charles Causley
Festival. They have lived in Launceston for nearly forty years.

TALK: Charles Causley (1917-2003) was born in Launceston and, with the exception of War Service, lived there until his death. He worked as a primary school teacher while establishing himself as a poet with an international reputation.
With the use of rare photographs and recordings, this talk examines those aspects of Causley’s life which influenced his work, both as a writer of adult and children’s poetry, and looks at his reputation, of which Philip Larkin wrote “Your truth, your sense/ We count on as a sure defence”.
