I discovered this online


I missed when this wonderful reading started but I am slowly catching up.  The reading is up to Day 29.  I think most folks my age would have read The Ancient Mariner when they were at school.  I wish I had the opportunity to have access to the mix of art, poetry and scientific research when studying the poem.  This is a wonderful way to bring the poem to life and to introduce art, artists and scientists into the mix.

This link will give you a bit more information. https://www.theguardian.com/books/2020/apr/18/all-alone-online-iggy-pop-and-jeremy-irons-lead-mass-ancient-mariner-reading

With each reading, and accompanying the artwork, there is a copy of the extract and information relating to it.

The actual link to the readings is here The start can be found if you click on the menu and then “readings”.

I hope you enjoy.
