The Book of Hours is a contemporary reimagining of a medieval book of hours. These were collections of exquisitely hand-illustrated religious readings. They were created in a handy size so they could be carried by the owner and read on a daily basis. This book of hours is secular, but the general mood is contemplative and reflective. The poems can be read individually or as a story of growth and change throughout a year. These are the poems from the poetry film project http://thebookofhours.org, which has been made in collaboration with an international community of filmmakers.

MEDIA REVIEWS
`The work that Lucy English has done on The Book of Hours, exploring and expanding the emerging genre of the poetry film, is inspiring. She is pushing the boundaries of what poetry can do while bringing the medieval tradition of the book of hours into the twenty-first century.' - Dr Kate Pullinger, Director of the Centre for Culture and Creative Industries, Professor of Creative Writing and Digital Media, Co-Investigator, Ambient Literature; `The Book of Hours is a hugely ambitious and important experiment in collaborative poetry filmmaking, raising the bar for other poets interested in moving beyond the page and the stage, and demonstrating the unique appeal of film series and video anthologies in a lyrical, non-narrative mode.' - Dave Bonta, publisher of Moving Poems movingpoems.com; `The thing I really like about The Book of Hours is its almost endless hospitality to new and different inputs. It's a brilliant `frame' into which very different inputs can `flow'.' -Philip Gross, poet & winner of the T.S. Eliot Prize
