You have recited this incredible poem as it deserves to be recited. When I heard you reciting this I was reminded of Keats' passage in his letters where he describes his theory of the Chameleon Poet. A true poet becomes their own subject. Your recital is full of passion and powerful feelings and meaningful messages that are still given voice through the words written by Owen all those years ago.
Thank you Rehan. It is interesting that when I read poetry aloud it somehow breathes its life into me, and not the other way round. when I see actors do poetry they tend to force their feelings onto it rather than let the music of the poem, the life of the words animate them. I've been reading some shakespeare aloud recently to see what he has to show me. I should be able to reveal a bit of that next month.. i hope you are well, and thank you fro being such a supporter of the work i endeavour to do. Literature is the most important human creation, it is right up there with baking bread, discovering fire and having babies..
