DUNBAR OUT LOUD The Poetry of Paul Laurence Dunbar

by | Read by Bobby Norfolk

Poetry & Drama • 1 hr. • Audio Program • ©

This poetry collection has something for everyone--the admonitions of an exasperated mother rousting her child in the morning, the spine-tingling teasing of the bogeyman, the fleeting memory of the first rose of love, the profound sadness and injustice of sons, fathers, and husbands going off to war, and the excited cheer of a special picnic. Paul Dunbar wrote of the African-American experience at the turn of the twentieth century. Storyteller Bobby Norfolk brings this poetry to life for the 21st-century listener. Dunbar's stories are written to be heard, and Norfolk tells the stories, illuminates poignant thoughts, and captures photographic moments through pacing, inflection, musical intonation, and African-American dialect. His interpretation complements the energy and depth of Dunbar's work. Period musical interludes complete this fine recording. A.R. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 04]
