That podcast is a good discussion of biography, especially on the greatness of the letters. Thank you for the recommendation.

I like this story Adam. Birkbeck College misses you (or parts of it do, anyway).

I enjoyed both your unnerving story - it’s curious how conversations, even those heard on a podcast, often become stuck to a certain place - and the Ricks podcast. Thank you.

How typically generous of Christopher to use such an occasion not only to express his pleasure in the Keats book, but to promote a living poet. He is such a fine reader that it is a great pity he has never been asked to record a selection of poems from his Oxford Book of English Verse.
