Chaucer’s poems are lyrical and filled withelegant imagery, but they also carry an emotional intensity that confronts and discomforts the listener; Helen’s film photography is a delight in itself, and her use of still and moving images is varied and consistently thought-provoking; but when the poems are combined with the visuals, the effect is even greater than the sum of its parts.
