Jan 20: Richard Austin performs Gerard Manley Hopkins

A note from Loren Wilkinson...

Richard Austin, a British actor (quite a bit of TV work) has recently spend much of his time performing (brilliantly) the poetry of Gerard Manley Hopkins. He will be doing this at Regent on Tuesday Jan. 20 at 6:30 pm.

I met Richard at a Hopkins conference at Oxford a few years ago, and have encountered him in Hopkins contexts (Dublin and Regis University in Denver) since. He has recently moved to the Sunshine Coas... You would appreciate very much his interpretation of the poems, which is better than anything else I've heard recorded. (Including Richard Burton).
