Poetry will never die, as long as we keep using language. This is what British poet Adam O’Riordan
thinks when he hears that talk about the 21st century eating poetry alive. Words have the ability of catching the eye, they form images beautifully and that’s unmistakably powerful. It is said about Adam that his writing is intimate without being confessional and his published book, In the Flesh
, was a confident debut. We have a talk with him about what poetry means today and the subjects that concern him as a writer, which seem to recall those from the romantic era.
