Denise Riley on BBC Radio

By Harriet Staff


For those Denise Riley fans among you--or newly reckoning, perhaps because of Dana Ward's recent piece--check out a reading and talk with the poet on BBC Radio's show The Verb, dated just this March 15 as part of a segment on grief and writing:

Denise Riley's poem 'Part-Song' was written after the death of her son Jacob, as was her essay 'Time Lived, without its Flow' (Capsule Editions). Denise reads from both works and explains how difficult she found it to write anything in the aftermath of Jacob's death, and why she wanted to find a way to communicate her altered experience of time.
