John Simopoulos: A Tiger Burning Bright
When we asked John Simopoulos, Founding Fellow and Dean of Degrees at St Catherine’s College, Oxford, to read Coleridge’s The Rime of the Ancient Mariner last year, we had an overwhelming response from listeners wanting to hear more from him.
We’re thrilled to welcome John back to present this special new year’s “mixed bag of prose, poetry and century” that is certain to delight and inspire you… happy new year!
John reads and discusses:
- Meditation 17 by John Donne
- “The Little Black Boy” by William Blake
- “The Tiger” by William Blake
- Samuel Johnson’s letter to Lord Chesterfield
- “Those Winter Sundays” By Robert Hayden
- “Heraclitus” by William Johnson Cory
- “On The Coast Of Coromandel” by Osbert Sitwell
- “The Owl And The Pussy Cat” by Edward Lear
Music in the programme is available for purchase from magnatune.com
