Abstruser musings

This is totally cool: my friend Poet Jamie was interviewed on Radio 4's Today programme this morning. The feature covered the rather ingenious issue of how climate change will affect poetry and they wanted to ask a proper stanza-man what the answer was.

Jamie did a sterling job, reeling off some Chaucer in middle English without breaking a sweat and namechecking Coleridge's ace Frost at Midnight, which we both studied at school - with most believing mind - for A-level. His words fell on mine ear most like articulate sounds of things to come.
