Derek Walcott's Selected Poems

I've been trying to post all of our recordings on weekdays, so you all can start off your days listening to poetry on your iPods on the way to work, but seeing how Derek Walcott's latest book, Selected Poems, will be reviewed today in both The Seattle Times and The New York Times Book Review it seemed like occasion enough to put the audio up.

This is Derek Walcott reading sections from his poem The Bounty, which is excerpted in Selected Poems, and two poems by Joseph Brodsky--'Lullaby' and 'Love Song'--all recorded at FSG's 50th anniversary party in 1996.
