Your list has always been interesting, idiosyncratic, imaginative and your translations [...] have been a source of pleasure to me.

  • Description
  • Contents
  • Rockdrill is a series of unusual new audio CDs commissioned by the Contemporary Poetics Research Centre at Birkbeck College, London, & produced by Colin Still and Birdie Hall of Optic Nerve.

    The series includes the work by British and American poets, and combines new and archival recordings. Each CD is remarkable for the scope and range of material included, and for the quality of production. This unique new sound library is scheduled to grow in directions suggested by the initial list.

    Rothenberg: 'Writing poetry for me has always included an involvement with the life of poetry - & through that life an intensification, when it happened, of my involvement with the other life around me.'
