Levertov, Holub, Frost
On Monday I read a load of poems with some students, including Denise Levertov's 'Intrusion'. I really like it, but I was quite surprised that the students did too, on the whole. You never can tell. I've been meaning to read more of Levertov's work for ages, and maybe this i the shove I need.
Then last night I was at a poetry do and heard people read Miroslav Holub's 'The Door' (one translation here) and Robert Frost's 'Unharvested') – both poems I had known before, but it was a pleasure to be reminded of them.
