Follow my blog with Bloglovin
I only discovered Bloglovin’ few months ago and I’ve mainly been using it to read blogs I was already keeping a whether-eye on, but now I’ve decided to give it a try myself.
What do you think? Do you use Bloglovin’ for your blog or to read others? Love or loathe? Let me know
I was scrolling through my Twitter feed the other day when I ran across a tweet from Interesting Literature summarising the history of English Poetry in just 8 poems. I know, tall order right?
I was intrigued.
And as I read them it struck me as the perfect opportunity for some poetry reading!
So I read them. And recorded them. And here they are in a Soundcloud Playlist. Hop over, have a listen and say ‘Hi’. I’d love to know what you think.
And, in case that link doesn’t work, here’s another.

Love is not all: it is not meat nor drink
Nor slumber nor a roof against the rain;
Nor yet a floating spar to men that sink
And rise and sink and rise and sink again;
Love can not fill the thickened lung with breath,
Nor clean the blood, nor set the fractured bone;
Yet many a man is making friends with death
Even as I speak, for lack of love alone.
It well may be that in a difficult hour,
Pinned down by pain and moaning for release,
Or nagged by want past resolution’s power,
I might be driven to sell your love for peace,
Or trade the memory of this night for food.
It well may be. I do not think I would.
RT @TheStage: Judi Dench: ‘I live in fear as an actor’ @MountviewLDN bit.ly/1C30NAU http://t.co/9Jf0pnvi1x
RT @MelChurcher: There has to be fire in a diamond, heat in a volcano, depth in an ocean – without YOU at the core of a role – no depth, no heart, no centre
#RIP Ron Moody and Sir Christopher Lee. Sad to see two greats go, although both in their 90s so acting’s clearly good for the health.
RT @TheaterHistory: Remember that your actions today have to adhere to the neoclassical unities. Ugh, Ben Jonson’s birthday is the worst.

RT @Actingnodrama: Don’t let others dictate what you can do as an #actor. Can’t find work? Create your own projects, then act in them.
