Lovely, personal, enlightening

The way Alice tackles poem readings is so interesting and her style is really personal and not academic or dry at all. The interviews she has are really interesting, it's fascinating hearing poets talk about the poems they love! Would recommend to anyone even if (like me) they're not a "poetry person".
