Double audio-cassette.

Basil Bunting wrote that "Poetry, like music, is to be heard." His own readings of his own work are essential listening for a full appreciation of his highly musical poetry. This tape selection was released with Bloodaxe's centenary edition of Bunting's Complete Poems (2000).

As well as Briggflatts (1966), this double-cassette includes Bunting reading two other great Sonatas, Villon (1925) and The Spoils (1951), along with selections from his two books of Odes. The first tape is a studio set, while the second has selections from two live readings.
