Carrying the Torch
Carrying the Torch is a blog in which writers 'shadow' the progress of the Olympic torch around the UK and each contributor gets a day to post about a particular topic linked to the locations where the torch is being carried.
My day was today (20 June). The post is on WH Auden and his continuing relevance, pointing out that writers may end up being remembered for material that they never intended to publish - in Auden's case, his gay poem 'The Platonic Blow'.
Have fun; hope you enjoy what you read and find other interesting posts on the blog as well.
