I love these interviews:http://bloodaxe.ncl.ac.uk/explore/#/research.
That’s not to say that I love all these poets, but they all say interesting things in these interviews. There are some questions asked that seem to me better than others, and some of the interviewers appear better to me than others.
I haven’t watched them all yet, but the ones that I have watched all end in a reading, too. Isn’t that good? And they’re well filmed. And the sound is clear (if you know me, you know why I am saying this). Little gems in every single one about the writing process, or the editing process, or about the publication business. There’s Philip Levine forgetting Neil Astley’s name. There’s Gillian Allnutt talking about ‘partial remaindering’. Paul Batchelor’s brilliant ‘Pit Ponies’ is also read here. There’s Jackie Kay. There’s Fleur Adcock. Enjoy!
