Very sad news. I was worried about his second round of cancer treatment. Only a few weeks ago he sent me this, The long voyage back to the Odyssey
, part of his continuing interest in bringing poetry off the page and back into people's voices. Part of mail from him last month,
Good to hear from you, Will. I am continuing with the acoustic poetry
work, a few more things to work out in the home studio recording but I am
getting there, conversions and compressions and mp3 and m3u to stream. But
this opens new doors, my Sappho translation I has been used in a lot of legal
and illegal places, I am thinking how to do it acoustically, not only
English but the Greek also with my own (modern....how else?) intonations.
Aoidoi.org would never have existed without his encouragement.
How did you hear? Is there some public notice?
