A nice idea from the Guardian: “A series of readings, in which poets choose a favourite poem from their own work, and recite it to camera.”
There are two readings up so far. I enjoyed the understated comfortable – in both voice and visage – reading in this one by Yorkshire (love that accent..) poet Simon Armitage.
Not so much this one by Jo Shapcott – her voice and face are both trying too hard for my taste.
Look forward to seeing who goes up next – the site has an RSS feed so you can add it to your reader and get them as they are posted.
