Treatment- About His Person By Simon Armitage

Extracts from this document...


Treatment- About His Person By Simon Armitage During my video a man whose voice is slightly eerie but very crisp and clear particularly when there are other sound effects will read the poem "About His Person" by Simon Armitage.
