Christopher Logue, author of my favourite poem 'Come to the Edge' has passed away. Among many things, he was a great editor - and his work in the theatre (with Lyndsay Anderson among others) informs his understanding of poetry as delivered words.

Here is a 1993 interview with the Paris Review:

He lives with his journalist wife, Rosemary Hill, in Camberwell Grove, South London, and works in a quiet office at the top of the house. It overlooks on the street side one of the finest rows of Georgian houses in London and on the garden side the church of St. Giles, whose elegant spire rises over the trees and the low garden wall. He speaks in a deep, distinctive voice with a clear, melodious diction.
