    Yeah it's amazing. I could never have done it half as well. No way. He brings it to life.

    I can barely read straightforward poetry. I can never get a grip on the rhythm unless it rhymes at the end of each line. That's partly why I find the songs in Pynchon a pain in the arse. I can't work out the tune and have to read them like prose.

    I'm not sure I have much of a talent for that either tbh. Keep bashing away.

    There's supposed to be a polymath genius character in the yellow submarine (I've never watched it) called Jeremy that's based on JH Prynne. I mentioned this to Tracy Twyman on Twitter shortly before she died.

    Jeremy Halvard Prynne is from Kent and is old enough to have done national service. He was taught by Donald Davie among others and spent his entire adult life teaching and librarianing at Cambridge University. He has disowned his first book, Force of Circumstance, refuses to be anthologised and never reads his work in the UK. He loves blazing weed and is said to be capable of eating an entire wheel of cheese in one sitting.
