(outtake) 150 of 365: Reading Nina Cassian's "Temptation"
Following Caryn's readings (which I presume or of some of her current favourite poems, but I cannot be sure as they are in Dutch) I thought I'd make Day 150 of my 365 Days project a still from a video of me reading a current favourite of mine: Nina Cassian's "Temptation". I'm reading from Neil Astley's amazing anthology "Being Alive" published by Bloodaxe Books. The poem is by Nina Cassian as I said, and translated from the Romanian by Brenda Walker and Andrea Deletant.
But it didn't quite work out. Although the setting was lovely (Churchill College Cambridge on a sunny Spring afternoon) the microphone in my camera struggled being outdoors and at a distance from me so you can hardly hear me at all. I'll try again another day with another poem. Anyway, here's the video: http://flickr.com/photos/dumbledad/3332496975/
