Literature and Error

In which Adam Smyth and a train-delayed—but eventually present—James Kidd are joined by poet Liane Strauss to discuss mistakes, slips, wanderings, and things not quite going to plan. A dash of Shakespeare; a shot of Keats; a half-pint tumbler of Wallace Stevens; and a generous lacing of Phil “Errare” Larkin.

Like knights errant, but in Harris tweed.

Duration: 55.24
