A rose is the visible result of an infinitude of complicated goings on in the bosom of the earth and in the air above, and similarly a work of art is the product of strange activities in the human mind.
You would have thought that our first priority would be to ask what the ecologists are finding out, because we have to live within the conditions and principles they define. Instead, we've elevated the economy above ecology.

I went on a book tour immediately after 9/11. I was due to leave the following Wednesday, so I just did.

To sing opera, one needs two things: the voice and the passion - and above all, the passion.

2012 has been an extraordinary year for our country. We cheered our Queen to the rafters with the Jubilee, showed the world what we're made of by staging the most spectacular Olympic and Paralympic Games ever and - let's not forget - punched way above our weight in the medals table.
Poetry is above all a concentration of the power of language, which is the power of our ultimate relationship to everything in the universe.
