Sep 18, 2009 by

Ok, I’ve finally gotten to them.  They have been lying on my drive for quite a while now, but I’ve managed to get them out from Skype chat notes to the form you see below, which takes a fair amount of time.

Better late than never, so here they are: the Show Notes to our longest, most passionate show on poems to date! 🙂

I’ll update the show notes both on the pages here on Bookbabble.net, as well as the show notes on the podcast host, Mevio.com.

Poems Mentioned in show:

Mentioned in show:

 

* Bjorn’s Translation of Nils Ferlin’s ‘I folkviseton’ poem (as a contrast to the translation as it appears here):

My heart, I said, it was thine;
Thy heart, you said, it was mine
And you said you liked the couplet
Where your tears were mine when you wept
So these were the rhymes we made
Then you married sensibly
I get royalties each time it’s played
And nothing has changed for me

Liam’s Favourite Poets:

  • Ferenc Juhasz (Hung.)
  • Tennyson
  • Emily Dickinson
  • Yeats
  • Boleslaw Lesmian (Poland)
  • Seamus Heaney
  • Jack Clemo (Cornwall)
