Edward Thomas, Wayfarer
4 April - 17 June, Temporary Exhibition Gallery
2017 marks the centenary of the death of Edward Thomas, a poet of international renown who produced his most celebrated work while living in Steep. This exhibition will take up the theme of the road or path and the influence this had on both the literature and the life of the poet. It will showcase published items from the significant collection of Tim Wilton-Steer, currently housed in our new Edward Thomas Study Centre, as well as original examples of Thomas’ writing. A selection of contemporary responses to Thomas’ work will include photographs taken by members of the Petersfield Photographic Society.
