Great audio for those who care to listen.
The poet Anthony Joseph has been writing a new collection that addresses a key relationship in his life.
His father, Albert was many things - a sharp dresser, an orator, a builder but he was only an intermittent figure in Anthony's childhood. And it is this absence which made him powerfully present in Joseph's imagination.
Anthony reveals some of his writing process and his form of 'calypso sonnet', a politically invested line length that, he says, "enforces a melodic rhythm which reminds me of my father" and favours a decidedly Afro-Caribbean approach.
In this programme, Anthony explores ideas around fatherhood, masculinity, absence and loss, as he talks to other artists whose art has become a space for interrogating the memory of their father.
We hear from fellow poet Raymond Antrobus, the singer Gregory Porter and the Trinidadian film-maker Mariel Brown.

About the previous post:
This window on zoom is a rewriting of Pink Floyd's world-famous song:
"Another Brick in the wall." whose lyrics were short too.
The video is like a movie. It lasts 6 minutes. You'll easily find it!
You had heard of Pink Floyd, hadn't you?

Watch Amanda Gorman deliver her poem.
Then, you can watch Anderson Cooper, a well-known American TV journalist with Amanda Gorman.
Don't you like the sound of it too? (a 10/10 for any of my pupils who will tell me what she refers to.
#keeptrying) I do.
