About this product
- DescriptionDiscusses about voices taking each other for granted, saying 'etc etc' and not listening, nevertheless turning out to duet. This title contains double- and multi-columned poems, where each column can be read in its own right (or left), and also read across the columns.
- Author BiographyIra Lightman wanted to be a vicar. He is a poet who makes Public Art, mainly in the North East of England, where he lives. His pieces include The Spennymoor Letters, ten 2-metre high poems made to look like the letters S, P, E, N, N, Y etc, the Gatesheads and the Blythscopes, coloured text in head and binocular shapes, Glade (a river of text) and the Family Tree Forest. He appears regularly on Radio 3's The Verb, writing Pi mnenomics, Miltonic verse while blindfolded, and a poem entirely out of words containing a double L, as a collaboration with Peter Finch. He likes to make formal innovations for special occasions.
