Live Recording of Day-long Reading of 'Paradise Lost', Trinity College Dublin, 2012

“The mind is its own place, and in itself can make a heaven of hell, a hell of heaven”

Here is the link to the live reading of John Milton's Paradise Lost as recorded at Trinity College Dublin on the 14th of December, 2012.
It offers a good opportunity to put voices to Irish poets you’ve been reading for years. Among the many notables that took part in the day-long reading were Eiléan Ní Chuilleanáin, Macdara Woods, Philip Coleman, Brendan Kennelly,  Nuala Ní Dhomhnaill, Iggy McGovern, Harry Clifton and Seamus Heaney. I read my lines from Book 9.
A commemoration of John Berryman’s Dream Songs is being planned for this October. A collection of newly penned Dream Songs is in the pipeline; I expect there’ll be an online recording of that event before the year is out.
