Event Description

Feature - James McCoy "Myths in Rhyme"

James McCoy, Cambridge spoken word artist, retells ancient myths in rhyme, providing new insights as old stories are updated.

THE YEARS GO FAST… AND THE DAYS GO SLOW
Until today the gods had envied him:
The men had wept for him, the girls had slept
With him; while fields and floods, rocks, hills and plains

Repeated his sounding lyre; and Orpheus
Could make leviathans forsake unsounded
Deeps to dance on sands; until today
