Archipelagic in thought and letter

Some archelagic poets and writers were at a convocation, a ‘gathering of voices’, in the Bodleian Library, Oxford, on 9th October to celebrate the launch of Clutag Press’ first volume of the literary magazine Archipelago. The Library also chose the occasion to launch their first series of BODcasts and because they did you can listen to what was said by all the speakers there. Among those speakers was Seamus Heaney – BODcast available directly here [mp3 file] – who quoted a wise man, fellow poet Czeslaw Milosz.

“What is articulated, strengthens. What is not articulated tends towards the non-being.”
