Take a look at these and see what you think. We'll discuss them in the next class.

Ed Dorn (from the Black Mountain School) on the Reagan administration in the USA: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HQZxu248MU0
John Cooper Clarke's 'Beasley Street' (with musical backing) from the 1970s: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3mzrnVbsaXk
Bring a poem next week, shed your fears and just enjoy reading stuff - by you or by another - aloud!
