Clive James's poem "Woman Resting"

It’s interesting, and possibly instructive, to hear one of Clive’s poems, in this case Woman Resting, being read someone other than* Clive himself.

Hmmm... I'm not convinced that this is the most nuanced reading possible. He seems, to me, to get some of the enjambment wrong. I'd prefer Clive.

I'd say he misses most of the enjambment. He reads exactly like I tell my students not to, pausing in the middle and end of practically every line.

Well, yes: I was being generous. He could do with clearing his throat as well.
