Poetry CD Giveaway!

Cd_2 For those of you who may be tuning in to our blog for the first time this year, I have a great treat. FSG has created a CD of some of our favorite poetry recordings from last year, and I'm giving just three away on this blog. The recordings include:

There are lots more tracks, but I need to stop myself before I list all of them! If you're interested in receiving a CD, leave a comment below with the name of your favorite FSG poet. We'll choose three people at random to receive the CD. Let's put the end date on this tomorrow afternoon at 5 PM EST.

Comments

Rebecca Belarge

Robert Pinsky during the day. Elizabeth Bishop at night. My two favs!

Travis Smith

Robert Lowell.
Cal, bring me luck!

Xavier Farre

Derek Walcott, undoubtedly.

Michael

August Kleinzahler as a matter of fact, for being endlessly engaging and - by virtue of still being alive - making the promise of more yet to come (unlike so many favourites).

Bill Cohen

I'll say Paul Muldoon. He is an intelligent and funny writer who is always a joy to hear read live. And, anyone who pens lyrics to a couple of Warren Zevon songs ("My Ride's Here," and "McGillicudy's Reeks") is a hero in my book.

Niall Munro

Federico Garcia Lorca - for his wonderful, powerful imagery of the city and of the countryside. It would be great if FSG could release a recording of his poems being read in both the original Spanish and in English.

Michael

Wow - there are several -

It'd narrow it down to between John Ashbery, Ted Hughes.

John

Philip Larkin. Surly and subversive, but a master of subtle tone shifts.

Temple

How about the turfy tongue of Seamus Heaney? Or maybe that progging ploughboy, John Clare?

Chris K.

Fred Seidel. Need I say more?

BR

Rilke, always.

JT

Muldoon.

Actually, Heaney.

No, I mean Hughes.

I mean Bishop.

Er, Fred Seidel.

Philip Larkin.

Muldoon.


David Livewell

My favorite FSG poem and poet would be "Clearances" by Seamus Heaney: pure perfection.
