New College Reads To You
Gyles Brandreth Reads To You
Writer, broadcaster, actor, entertainer—and New College, Oxford alumnus—Gyles Brandreth reads for #NewCollegeReadsToYou the poem ‘Everything Is Going To Be All Right’, by Belfast-born poet Derek Mahon (1941–2020). His reading is accompanied visually by penetrating and wonderfully sensitive portraits of Derek Mahon by the Paris-based artist—and a contemporary of Gyles’s at New College from the late sixties/early seventies—Anthony Palliser.
Derek Mahon’s poem appears in Gyles Brandreth’s much-praised new anthology, Dancing By the Light of the Moon, an outstanding collection of over 250 of the best-loved poems in the English-speaking world.
This is the poem from the anthology that has resonated most with Gyles during this year, and it is one which has struck a chord universally since the pandemic began.

New College Notes
The Long Reach of New College’s Catholic Apologists
In the immediate wake of Henry VIII’s act of supremacy, New College was notable among the Oxford colleges for the continuing strength and quality of its humanist Catholic apologists. By the early years of Elizabeth I’s reign, most of these had gone abroad or had been imprisoned, and with them went a remarkable tradition of scholarship . . .
