Marianne Moore
"Poetry. I, too, dislike it. Reading it, however, with a perfect contempt for it, one discovers in it, after all, a place for the genuine." Even as a young woman, Marianne Moore never claimed that what she was writing was poetry, but that's the way she wanted it to be. Indeed, at the time of her earliest publication, in 1915, her work had little in common with the popular poetry of the day. This wonderful collection captures Moore's essence--her cool tone, vivid imagery, and razor-sharp wit. In addition to a sampling of Moore's poems, the program includes clips of interviews with Moore and commentary by Kenneth Burkes and poets Grace Schulman and Charles Tomlinson. (Running time: 1 hour, 1 cassette)
