About this item
A L Rowse is the foremost Cornish writer of the day, a pre-eminent Elizabethan historian and man of letters. His Cornish roots are described in books such as his classic A Cornish Childhood, and through his poetry and stories.
In this recorded collection, made at his home, Trenarren, the author reads many of his favourite poems, including:-
How Many Miles to Mylor? ; Easter at St Enodoc ; Westcountry Folk Song ; Child's Verses for Winter ; The White Cat at Trenarren ; Duporth Hill.
He reminisces about his life and times in Cornwall. What is captured here, is the intimacy of the author in his home, recalling his lifelong love of Cornwall and his cats.
The recording is introduced by author and journalist James Mildren, a long-time friend of Dr Rowse.
