This is a challenging but interesting listen and covers background to canons, etc. But only covers the first two thirds/three quarters of the book. I reheard much of it as it is easy to lose track when doing other things - driving for example. It would be good to have the rest of the book and library in audible form. Very worthwhile for anyone with a sincere interest in understanding the Buddhist back story.

I loved this. Stupidly thought it was read by Colm Toibin but who cares. No matter how repressed or not Elizabeth Bishop was. I suspect she would have been very frustrating in person. I found this inspirational and a lovely introduction to her poetry.
And did not feel like a complete idiot when getting to understand a bit more about the background to her poetry, her loves and life. She was flawed and lacked confidence, but also did not. So join the club.
