Billy Collins and 'Poetry on Record' [US]
In the first part of a two-part interview, former U.S. Poet Laureate Billy Collins guides us through the new spoken-word four-CD box set Poetry on Record: 98 Poets Read Their Work, 1888-2006.
25 minutes. Recordings of poets reading their poems: William Butler Yeats ("Lake Isle of Innisfree"), William Carlos Williams ("Red Wheelbarrow"), Robert Hayden ("Those Winter Sundays"), and Muriel Rukeyser ("The Ballad Orange and Grape"). Also, Leonard Cohen sings Byron ("So We'll Go No More a'Roving") quite cheesily.
