Episode Info:

David Turner is in south east London talking to poet Caroline Bird about her fifth collection, 'In These Days of Prohibition' (Carcanet Press, 2017). The pair discuss how Caroline chose, in this collection, to confront feelings of shame and guilt and examine why we might deny these feelings. As it frequently does, the topic of honesty in poetry rears it's head. Caroline reads three poems: (00:04:37) - Eye Contact (00:33:11) - To Be Explicit (01:00:53) - Megan Married Herself http://www.carolinebird.co.uk/ https://lunarpoetrypodcasts.com/ https://www.facebook.com/LunarPoetryPodcasts/?ref=bookmarks https://twitter.com/Silent_Tongue Transcript available to download here: https://lunarpoetrypodcasts.files.wordpress.com/2018/02/ep110-caroline-bird-transcript.pdf
