Language as gestation: a female power

To celebrate Poetry Day 2019, Peggy O’Brien, who was in Ireland to promote her new book of poetry Tongues, did a wonderful panel interview with Deirdre O’Sullivan, whose award-winning Tangleweed and Brine was published by our good friends at Little Island. Expertly moderated by Siobhán Parkinson, the thematic affinities between the books quickly became apparent. Listen back to a lively discussion here.
