Paul Lester's last comments on poems and poets

  • POEM: Naming Of Parts by Henry Reed (4/10/2006 5:16:00 AM)

    I can see why you'd feel that, Francois, but the omission of italics or inverted commas here was very deliberate on Reed's part, and I feel it does highlight the unsettling sense of where the boundaries between 'nature' and 'culture' are to be drawn.Also, I recall hearing Reed say that when the poem is recited he intended that it should be without any change in the speaking voice to signal difference of character.

  • POEM: Barking Spiders (Children) by C.J. Heck (1/9/2006 4:43:00 AM)

    Yes, CJ, after Miss Muffet etcetera the spider deserves an appreciative muse - All best wishes, Paul Lester

  • POEM: Down At The Greasy Spoon Cafe by Paul Lester (11/22/2005 5:10:00 AM)

    Thanks for the positive feedback, Max, though I can't grasp the objection to the use of the word 'chance'.The Greasy Spoon Cafe is a great British national institution being, alas, destroyed by the spread of the clone culture of corporate fast-food interests.But examples of the Greasy Spoon Cafe do continue their heroic resistance here and there.
