Bunny Does Lit Crit

Ailz is revising for her Open University exam (tomorrow) and I've been helping out by reading poems onto tape for her.

Great chunks of Wordsworth and Coleridge and other romantics.

There's an almost sensual pleasure to be had from reading poetry aloud.

Bunny enjoys listening. He went wild over Tintern Abbey- racing round the room and jumping about like a march hare.

But he doesn't like Kubla Khan. First time I read it he bit through the microphone lead. Second time he ran away and hid.
