Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
While most trade presses have published poetry over the years, FSG has kept up the most dignified, prestigious list. This tape, recorded in September 1996, presents 11 poets reading their own poems and the work of one poet dead or unable to attend. It works best when the pairings stem from an intimate connection: John Ashbery does a fine presentation of poems by his friend James Schuyler; Frank Bidart, a former student of Robert Lowell, infuses a poem from "Life Studies" with all the angst of a life he knew well. Not all readers are as impressive: Paul Muldoon gives an emotionless reading of John Berryman; the distinction between poems by Seamus Heaney and Ted Hughes blurs. A handful of other recognizable names include Derek Walcott, Elizabeth Bishop, Joseph Brodsky, and Randall Jarrell. At a time when publishing conglomerates are shying away from poetry, this tape serves as a reminder that it must be kept alive as an aural form. Recommended.--Rochelle Ratner, formerly with "Soho Weekly News," New York
