Steve | 83 comments This is for listening, rather than reading. Oswald reading from her re-do of the Iliad. Terrific stuff.

Wonderful! Her reading style reminds me of that of David Whyte.

Caroline (CarolineDavies) | 285 comments She is a wonderful poet - rather better than David Whyte as far as I'm concerned although I grant her reading style may be similar.

I did review Memorial on here a while back

Steve | 83 comments I had sort of forgotten about it, but something I saw the other day indicated it had finally become available in the U.S. Thanks, Caroline!

J.S. Watts | 297 comments A brilliant book and a brilliant poet.
