Play • 1 hr 15 min

"a poem is a place you lick raw"

- Oksana Vasyakina.

 

This week we are joined by poet E.E. Jones as we journey through an eclectic selection of radical verse. Russian feminist poetry, queer poetry, Keralan communist poetry, poets of Bangladesh, Negritude, Langston Hughes, slam poetry, and some British favourites: Blake, Shelley, William Morris, and the Liverpool poets (Roger McGough et al).

 

With readings from The Incident by E.E. Jones. Plus, the prosaic benefits of a 4 day week.
