From the Beats of San Francisco to Russia's Ratushinskaya, WordTemple will feature some of the most interesting work and stories in the world of literature.
Sunday March 19, 2017 - 4:00 PM:
In celebration of Women’s History month, today’s program features five iconic American women poets reading their own work: Gertrude Stein, H.D., Edna St. Vincent Millay, Louise Bogan and Muriel Rukeyser. With little to no interruption between poets, sit back and experience these historic recordings of our poetic ancestors. Each offered something new when they burst upon the scene and now, decades later, their work maintains its relevance. Listen to these poems as you would listen to music. How do they speak to you in 2017?
