Butterflies of a bad summer – an interview with Karl Parkinson

Karl Parkinson of The Bogmans Cannon interviewed on RTE Arena about forthcoming collection Butterflies of a Bad Summer, with readings of new poems interspersed. Parkinson is among the most popular and highly achieved of Ireland’s new generation of ‘hybrid’ poets writing across and between the genres of performance and page poetry and connecting the Dublin street bard tradition with the high literature of the past.
