On the March 9, 2014 Poetry Show, host Dennis Morton welcomed special guest Rebekah Presson Mosby, a writer, audio anthologist and one of the preeminent producers of archival recordings of poets reading their work.
Regular Poetry Show listeners will be familiar with several of the anthology CDs produced by Ms. Mosby, beginning with In Their Own Voices: A Century of Recorded Poetry, released by Rhino Records in 1998. That project proved to be a commercial success, which led to…
- Our Souls Have Grown Deep Like the Rivers (2001 Audie award winner)
- Poetry on Record: 98 poets Read Their Work (1888 ~ 2006)
- Poetry Speaks Expanded
- Poetry Speaks: Hear Great Poets Read Their Work from Tennyson to Plath (Grammy Award nominee)
For this show, we hear a selection of cuts from Poetry on Record, including very early recordings (originally recorded onto wax cylinders!) of Walt Whitman and Alfred Lord Tennyson.
To hear more recordings from Poetry on Record, listen to the podcast of the Poetry Show from February 16, 2014.
