1 October
Marianne Faithfull
Marianne Faithfull is the famous singer of pop hits like As Tears Go by (written by Mick Jagger) and The Ballad of Lucy Jordan, but she is also an enthusiastic lover of poetry. She regularly recites poems during her concert performances, and her latest album co-written and recorded with Nick Cave in 2018 was titled ‘Negative Capability’, a reference to the poet John Keats. Last year, she recorded her dream album: a collection of spoken-word poems by her favourite 19th-century poets, to the accompaniment of a soundscape by Bad Seeds composer and violinist Warren Ellis. On She Walks in Beauty, Faithfull recited poems by Keats, Shelley, Wordsworth and Byron with an intensity and drive that reveals a lifetime spent in the peaks and valleys of an artist’s life in every word. From her home in London, Faithfull will speak with ILFU about She Walks in Beauty and her love of poetry.
