The English poet Alan Halsey at the Hay Poetry Jamboree a few weeks ago.  “The Salem chapel is where the readings took place.  Although I must have walked past it a thousand times I’d never noticed the date of its foundation, right at the start of the English Republic . . . of course boomtime for chapels, in the absence of an earthly king. . . .”
