Professor Andy Brown's latest collection of poetry, Medicine to the Dead, focuses on the subjects of the human body and medicine.

Some poems offer personal narratives while others explore the longer lines of medical history. Several respond to medical paintings and sculptures, others are translated versions from the Spanish of Borges, Machado, and some focus on Victorian cholera alongside present day issues.

There are also a number of lively, contemporary versions of medical scenes from Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales.

Andy Brown, Professor of English and Creative Writing at Exeter University will read from these poems and show the images that relate to and inspired them.
