Ian McMillan presents a condensed edition of The Verb. This week the programme is half an hour long and Ian talks to novelists Joanna Kavenne, Iain Sinclair and Esther Leslie and to poet Roddy Lumsden about the theme of unfinished work.
At just half an hour long, The Verb this week is an unfinished programme so Ian McMillan and his guests are celebrating unfinished and unpublished writings. Poet Roddy Lumsden shares a work in progress - a poem he started over a year ago but still hasn't found a way of concluding, the novelist Joanna Kavenna has written a story especially for the programme which raises the question of whether we are ever complete as human beings, and writer Iain Sinclair and Professor Esther Leslie discuss Walter Benjamin's Archive - a folio of scraps, notes, manuscripts and photographs which he considered just as important as his published work.
