Thirteen Birds (link to Anthropocene)
Three poems (link to text and audio recordings at iamb)
I translated a passage from the epic poem Os Lusíadas by the 16th century Portuguese poet Luis Vaz de Camões – an amazing description of St Elmo’s Fire and a waterspout at sea, which were clearly based on Camões’ experience as a sailor.
‘The Waterspout’ is published at Wild Court.
I’m working on a translation of Chaucer’s masterpiece, Troilus and Criseyde, from Middle English into modern English verse, maintaining the rime royal of the original.
And here’s the link for the audio recording of me reading it at the prize event.
