Faber & Faber - Christopher Reid: A Career in Poetry
Faber & Faber

Christopher Reid: A Career in Poetry

In this extended interview with poet Christopher Reid (recorded alongside a podcast featuring his new book 'Six Bad Poets') we discuss the many aspects of a varied career: Reid's early association with the 'Martian' school of writing (notable for its use of surprising visual imagery); his eight years as Poetry Editor at Faber, at the helm of a list featuring the likes of Hughes, Heaney and Muldoon and an emerging new generation of talented new writers; and finally his moving sequence of poems - 'A Scattering' - written in memory of his late wife Lucinda, and winner of the Costa Book of the Year Award. Interspersed in the conversation are readings of verse from his 'Selected Poems'. This is a fantastic insight into the life of someone at the very heart of British poetry, and should be of great interest to anyone involved - whether fledgling poet or experienced editor - in poetry publishing today. Part one of this extended interview can be found here: snd.sc/174uzvl.
