Syllable To Sound: Poetry As Defiance

Nice to turn on the telly today and see, and hear…poetry. This ABC program focused on the poet as social conscience, rebel and even activist and produced by Grant Fraser and featuring sensitive readings of poems by a great range of poets including:

  • Mandlestam
  • Emily Dickinson
  • Primo Levi
  • Marjorie Agesin
  • Charles Milosz
  • Grant Fraser

Not sure if the piano playing interludes were entirely necessary; I think that poetry isn’t necessarily aligned with classical music, but I wasn’t complaining!
