The Art of Laziness
Thursday 9 September 2004 21:45-22:30 (Radio 3)
Is indolence the enemy or ally of creativity? Who gets labelled lazy and why? Is idleness the refuge of the supine or is passive resistance possible? The poet and critic Patrick McGuinness traces the cultural history of idleness from the leisured Romans to the agitated indolence of the situationists in 60's Paris. With contributions from Andrew Motion, Mary Beard , Valentine Cunningham and David Dabydeen.
