Listen again

Two Radio 4 programs recently with readings of poetry, are still available online. These will expire in a few days. I recommend them.

The Wasteland by TS Eliot (introduced by Roger McGough). This is a very interesting collage of readings by Eliot himself, Ted Hughes and a new recording by Lia Williams. Extemely good I thought. It brought home to me more clearly than usual the mutable female presence in the poem.

In Memoriam by Tennyson, read by David Bamber - you might know him as Mr Collins in the BBC Pride and Prejudice, quite an underrated actor I think. I only caught the last few moments of this, but I will try to listen to it right through, probably tomorrow now. What I heard was great.
