‘In Sickness’ marks the introduction of a dark note in the Late Love Poems, as ill health pays a visit, and will again. And yet the second part of the poem is deeply celebratory. No matter how dark, there’s at least a moment where all these poems are bathed in light, sometimes months and years of light. Eamon Bourke’s film takes these themes on brilliantly and makes them his own in a way that meets and enhances what’s happening in the poem. Music by A.Taylor from The Musicbed.
