Paul Farley on BBC Radio 4
Date: 25 February 2013
The Echo Chamber is s a new programme on BBC Radio 4, introduced by Paul Farley and featuring the best of poetry now.
The first in the series looks at the body in question - the shapes of poems and the people in them. How does a poet decide on the form of their poem? What do different poetic forms do the subject of a poem? The programme travels the country and anatomises its poetic body. With found poems and field-notes, a diary of failure and success, the sound of the world being taken down in rhyme, and a look into a hive of dead bees in midwinter. With new poems from Sean Borodale, Don Paterson and Alice Oswald.
