I very recently discovered these reading from In Parenthesis by the author himself. They are down the page on this blog. https://bebrowed.wordpress.com/2014/02/ ... renthesis/

Save in the tapestries of afterthought.

I like hearing Tommy himself read some of his poems....in that rather Prufrockish voice.

Thanks for the heads up. I enjoyed Jeremy Irons readings of Eliot.

Cheers,

Just listening. I wouldn't have said I knew Prufrock at all memorised, but I do generally know what's coming next. And I wouldn't have imagined I had the TSE performance especially stored in my head, but I am noting each bit that JI delivers differently.

If I have a critique of TSE, it is that he does throw a too obvious rhyme in fairly regularly "is it"/"visit" etc etc...
