  • Mario Petrucci: ‘how does fragrance of sleep...’

    Poetry readings from our 2009 poetry season are no longer available.

    Mario Petrucci studied Natural Sciences and has a PhD in optoelectronics from University College, London. He has published several hundred poems and is active in many areas: performance, teaching, broadcasting and ‘poetic interaction’ – he was Radio 3’s first poet in residence, and his long poem ‘Heavy Water’, about Chernobyl, has been made into a film with Juliet Stevenson. His recent work is influenced by the American ‘Language’ poets such as Charles Olson.
