This rhythmic, mesmerizing collection of modern American poetry is brilliant. The radio should sound like this. Life should sound like this. Intelligent, passionate artists speak their minds, backed by wonderful soundtracks of original music. Short pieces (everything is short and sweet in this collection) by names like Leonard Cohen, Robert Creeley, and Joseph Brodsky flow effortlessly alongside up-and-coming poets and "found" pieces (from square-dance calls to rope-jumping rhymes). Every moment seems filled with insight and excitement. This entire production is a testament to why poetry is essential to our lives. B.P. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 03]
