Simon Armitage Reading and Q&A at Boston University

A terrific recording, with Simon Armitage being less jokey than on home soil. The choice of readings is interesting, and a cause for reflection on his poetic practice, writing to commision and writing what comes, poetry in the UK versus the US, and how violence in his poetry can actually mask what he is really working on 'off-screen'.
