Blake-based stories

Via Neil Gaiman’s blog comes word of a series of stories on BBC Radio 4 inspired by poems of William Blake. Gaiman’s is called “Jerusalem” – intriguing. It will be available later today and archived for a week.


“The Windhover”: a reading

Gardner Campbell, always a source of great blog material, has produced a lovely reading and interpretation of Hopkins’ “The Windhover.” His reading of the poem actually brought tears to my eyes, because more than any I’ve heard he managed to convey Hopkins’ … rapture, for want of a better word.

PS: my comments on his blog always for some reason seem to get caught in a spam filter. I’m hoping that the “trackback” will work, and he’ll take this post as an admiring comment!
