So amazing to hear Dylan Thomas reading his work on the radio. It’s been a long time since I listened to the CD I have of him doing it. I love how his reading sounds something like preaching, somewhere between music, abstract art and what we normally think of as a poetry reading.
I wish there were poets like this reading poems on the radio in this way now, and I wish people knew their names. Like a symbolist army of pagan abstractionists, raging against the literalism of the contemporary world.
But then, really, who even listens to the radio now?
