The Professionals


Just discovered this page of interview excerpts from a small gathering of big-name poets. It’s something of a mixed bunch to my eye (no great fan of Betjeman, me), but it looks worth investigating and at least it’s pretty international. I’ll certainly be commenting on Walcott‘s remarks on rhyme at some point once I’ve digested them a bit more and formulated my response.

I’m intrigued by the url: “… audiointerviews/professions/poets …” Perhaps someone at BBC Four is under the impression there’s an awful lot more money in poetry than any of us involved it think.
