Seán Street is one of our great listeners and one of our finest interpreters of listening. This book uses literature, the visual arts, music, radio, the sounds of the natural world, and silence, to explore the deepest meanings of sound.Or, as he writes in his last sentence, ‘all the murmurs in the whispering world’. Piers Plowright

The fourth in Seán Street's quartet of books on Sound Poetics has been published by Palgrave. Previous works in the series are The Poetry of Radio, (Routledge, 2012),The Memory of Sound, (Routledge, 2014) and Sound Poetics (Palgrave, 2017.)
