To mark the death of the one of the 20th century's greatest poets, Tadeusz Rozewicz, who I was so honoured to interview a year or two ago, Paul Bruner has created a wonderful work in response to the Rozewicz poem, the Plains, and has been kind enough to use some of my writing on Rozewicz as part of the program.
