Broadsheets of Richard Outram

Until reading the broadsides online t'other day, I'd only read a scattered few of Outram's poems. Since, I've had the exquisite pleasure of reading his _Hiram and Jenny_, on the basis of which I'd have to say that Outram is indeed a giant of our poetry, as George says, and a damn fine poet regardless of geography. I'll be tracking down more of his books for sure.

Just idle googling, really; came across a reference to the blog somewhere else, I think specifically referring to your reading of the Heaney poem. For some reason, I haven't been able to listen to your audio posts; something f'ed up with my sound, I think.
