Poetic Beats #2

Poetic Beats

Welcome to this weeks Poetic Beats with Howard B and Davy D, recorded on the 24th of July 2017 on Red Kite Radio.

Continuing on this month’s theme of poetry and motion,  I read the poem, On the 11.37 with Sylvia Plath. We look at poetry and trains and give an insight as to how Sylvia Plath’s poetry collection, Ariel, and the 21st Century scourge, mobile phones on trains, planted seeds for the poetry.

To hear the recording, please press the arrow on the left of the sound bar below.

Enjoy the conversation and I look forward to hearing your thoughts.



Good job again Davy and interesting dissection of poem. My son, really adores trains. He would love this poem by Sylvia Plath.

Reminds me of my hometown (disputed home of the railways: George Stephenson, the Rocket and the Darlington to Stockton Railway — I say disputed, because a few towns / cities seem to claim this, but we know it’s Darlington & Stockton’s triumph!). Fascinating stuff, really enjoy listening to these Poetic Beats, brings the work and the blog to life.
