In this podcast, recorded in August during the Edinburgh International Book Festival, Glyn Maxwell (http://www.glynmaxwell.com/) reads poems from his most recent collection Pluto (Picador) and talks with our Programme Manager, Jennifer Williams, about the breath and blood of poetry, how actors are the best first readers, why Auden is so important to his work and much more.

Glyn Maxwell offers us a guide to reading poetry in seven chapters: ‘White’, ‘Black’, ‘Form’, ‘Pulse’, ‘Chime’, ‘Space’ and ‘Time’. Described by Katy Evans-Bush in Poetry Review as being ‘as highly charged as a stick of poetry dynamite’, On Poetry sold out its first printing in less than a week. Hosted on Acast.
