2022's Keats-Shelley and Young Romantics Prizes are open. Our poetry theme this year is Elegy - to mark the bicentenary of Percy Bysshe Shelley's death in 1822, and also the composition of Adonais, his elegy for John Keats, the year before.
To mark the launch of the Prizes, we remixed Mick Jagger's recitation of Adonais at Hyde Park in 1969 with our own lovely podcast theme music: ‘Androids Always Escape’ by Chris Zabriskie. Visit http://chriszabriskie.com/ Most of the effects are attained from looping or sampling. Jagger's own voice. We hope he - and more to the point Shelley - approves.
Listen here or watch our trailer for the Prizes at either of the Prize pages on our website.
