A Commonplace – The Everyday Reader

And while I’m at it, I ask you to take these poems and use them. By which I mean, share them in private correspondence, speak them in your own accent, compose your own – better – versions of them. And if you want to record them as audio files then please do and please send them to me and I’ll see if they can’t be shared further. The sharing’s the thing. ” (A Commonplace, p. 89)

These audio recordings of poems by Jonathan Davidson from A Commonplace have been made by friends and neighbours. To find about more about the idea behind these recordings have a look at the blog.

If you would like to make your own recording of a poem from A Commonplace (those written by Jonathan) and have it featured here please get in touch via the Contact page.
