Malayan pantoums

Guardian Unlimited | The Guardian | Stephen Fry's Malayan pantoums
I agree with McMillan about Fry - he does seem, damn him, the complete renaissance man. McMillan is a lively and interesting poet, who has written much whimsical and humorous stuff, but who has a serious side too. I like "The Er Barnsley Seascapes" for their surreal quality. He has an excellent show on Radio 3, too, which I imagine no-one listens to as it's broadcast, because it goes out on a Saturday night. Another reason to thank the BBC Listen Again thingy. Anyway, now you know what a pantoum is, don't you?
