THE VOICE OF THE POET American Wits

by | Read by Ogden Nash, Dorothy Parker, Phyllis McGinley

Poetry & Drama • 1 hr. • Unabridged • © 2003

Complete with full text, original recordings, and pictures of the artists, this offering is a multimedia delight. Three of the world's cleverest poets. Three voices, each giving a rare glimpse of genius on the hoof. Did you know that Ogden Nash had an upper-class drawl? Who would have guessed that Dorothy Parker, wicked and irreverent, might have passed on the phone as the headmistress of an exclusive girl's school? Three brief but pithy biographies are bound in a booklet with pictures of the artists and facsimiles of their signatures. I fell in love with Phyllis McGinley. Her best efforts are not just deeply funny but also radically true. This woman wrote the first book of light verse ever to win the Pulitzer Prize. B.H.C.
