Returning to a familiar thread here – some more poetry that models techniques for radio, AND in this case also describes radio.

It’s A Sofa in the Forties by Seamus Heaney. Well illuminated in an article by Steve King at Today in Literature. Give it a read, it’s lovely.

Listen to the poet read the work himself about  20 or so minutes into this Radio Netherlands Classic Dox.
