Ruth Bidgood

I’ve just heard the news that the poet Ruth Bidgood died on March 4th in her hundreth year. I remember going to a reading by her when she was ninety and wrote about it HERE

My review of Symbols of Plenty containing her Hymn to Ffraid is HERE

Hers was a life well lived with poems well written.

    I’m sorry to hear of the loss of an accomplished poet. Judging by your review, Bidgood’s work sounds well worth checking out. It’s amazing to read poetry when one has no writing talent, lol it’s like watching a star athlete’s performance on the field.
