Audio: Jake Reads JH Prynne’s “Sketch for a Financial Theory of the Self”

January 29, 2011

I decided to experiment today with recording and uploading an audio file for use on the blog. Experiment successful. This poem by JH Prynne is one of my favourite things. I hope you like it. I did it with just iMovie and the mic in my laptop, so quality may be iffy. Also, I may decide that my voice sounds too much like a jube-jube come to life to be kept on the internet, and may eventually take the whole thing down.

Jake Reads JH Prynne’s Sketch for a Financial Theory of the Self

I like this poem. This poem gets me. For the record, I took it from his collected volume calledPoems (Bloodaxe Books, 2005), but the original collection it comes from is called “Kitchen Poems” (1968).
