More on Maggie and Sean

One thing which really impressed me about this poetry reading was the way the poets became different characters whilst reading their work. When Sean Bonney introduced himself he seemed quiet, almost shy but when he started to read he was transformed. His angry, anarchistic expressions driving forward his poetry to an audience of roughly 50 people.

My understanding of performance poetry may be basic but I can appreciate talent when it is in front of me and I learnt a lot from watching these poets perform.
