    Story

    This is a series of class lecture by Professor Karen Karblener for the Modern Scholar. This series is on Walt Whitman 1819 to 1892. According to Karblener Whitman was beginning of American poetry and is often called the “father of free verse”. The teacher goes through Whitman’s life and his poetry. She brings up controversy regarding his sexual orientation, his politics as a liberal democrat, being banned in Boston, and his opposition to slavery. She says Whitman was educated only to elementary school but was a printer and a reader. She states he was not considered successful in his lifetime but his poetry became sought after in the 20th century. She reads from some of his poems and discusses them such as “Leaves of Grass”. Overall it is a good introduction to Whitman. I remember little of what we discussed about Whitman in high school so this audio book allowed me to have a good understanding of Whitman and his place in American poetry.

    In this course we'll explore how Walt Whitman broke with the tyranny of European literary forms to establish a broad, new voice for American poetry. By throwing aside the stolid conventions and clichéd meters of old Europe, Walt Whitman produced a vital, compelling form of verse, one expressive of the nature of his new world and its undiscovered countries, both physical and spiritual, intimate and gloriously public.

    Story

    This is a book of 32 short poems divided into three parts published in 1978 written and read by Maya Angelou. I know Angelou is controversial and her books, plays and poems are banned in many places and like many great poets people either love her or hate her poems. I enjoy her poems not only for the story they tell and the optimism but the rhythm and rhyme. I have books of her poems but particularly enjoyed this audio book because of her beautiful voice reading her own poems. In this book I particularly like the poem “Willie” about her crippled uncle. I also enjoyed the working poems “One More Round” the man’s working poem and “Women’s Work” about women. The poems follow the even number stanzas in the eight stanza poem to create a refrain like those found in many work songs and are variations of many protest poems. Angelou wrote a play in 1976 about discrimination called “Still I Rise” the poem came from the play. It is one of my favorite poems. The opening of the poem is as follows:
    You may write me down in history
    With your bitter, twisted lies,
    You may tread me in the very dirt
    But still, like dust, I’ll rise
    Comparing how she continuously rises herself up emotionally to stay strong just, like how the moon and sun rise every day no matter what happens. By repeating I rise it makes the words that much more powerful and makes it stand out emphasizing the message which is to stay strong and to never allow anything or anyone stop you from fighting and living strong. The main theme of the poem is discrimination. The poem teaches readers that all humans have strength that lies within us that can help to overcome any obstacle. There is rhyme every other line for most of the poem that immediately guides the reader though the poem I think I will keep this book permanently on my iPod so I listen to it whenever I am in the mood.

  • The Early Poetry of Robert Frost, Volume II: Mountain Interval

    "A second best"

    Overall

    Having purchased a two cassette audio book of Robert Frost reading his own poetry some years ago, I had hoped that this purchase would obviate the need the laborious task of having to transfer them into digital format for the computer and my various MP3 players and entertainment tablet. Unfortunately, I can only say that the person reading Frost's poetry in this audio book, though with perfect diction, lacked any feel for or understanding of the poems he was reading. While it may be a bit unfair to compare the reader to the poet himself, nevertheless his performance was disappointing and now I'm reconciled to having to transfer the audio cassettes to digital format--very disappointing.

    A few negative (almost scathing) reviews of this recording gave me pause before I clicked to purchase, but I am so glad I ultimately ignored this (very bad) advice. This recording is a true gem. It is a GORGEOUS translation wonderfully read. I listened to the whole thing through twice in a row, and will surely revisit it soon. But first, onto Mr. Griffin's reading of Horace ... can't wait!

Such familiar legends as Hercules, Perseus and Medusa, Daedelus and Icarus, Diana and Actaeon, and many others, are breathtakingly recreated.

Or the increasing cast of high school and college-age students who perform his words in forensic competitions. This is Taylor in his element: performing in front of live and writhing audiences demanding and receiving all the rough, raw, and authentic passion of Taylor Mali's poetry.

    Frederick Lazarus Light's resolve to write a greater Iliad in English than Homer composed in Greek is manifest. This translation impersonates Homeric Greek. It runs with Achilleus and like man-shattering Hector in the shock of arms is resolutely sharp. As unrelenting as sublimity, not yielding lyrically, unprosaically vindicating Homer's vision, the brightest labor has been attempted and is brought over as a consummate attempt.

    Gethsemane is a sweeping poetic narrative that is a modern day version of John Milton’s Paradise Lost. Philosophically told in three acts from the point-of-view of Lucifer, the story tells of his fall from grace, how his manipulation of his heavenly brothers, The Watchers, brought about the advent of Hell, and how Mankind adopted his ominous nature in making his purgatory (Earth) secular. In the last act, irony finally confronts Lucifer when he realizes the affection he has for a particular woman, and the notion of seeking redemption by virtue of his love for her becomes the seminal moment of his existence, and that of Mankind.

    "You have nothing to fear, but fear itself."What happened to us? What did they do to US during the Cold War? Who were we before? Pioneers! Look at us now: Full of Fear. Is that who we want to be? We are children of the Cold War.Is that how we want to stay?
