There is no better medium for poetry than audiotape because poetry is the poet's voice. Poems as intensely personal as these ("Diving into the Wreck," for example, with its deep-sea diving metaphor for self-scrutiny) resonate in the deep, strong and patient voice of the poet herself. Watershed's reputation for fine-quality recordings of poets reading their works is unsullied in this excellent selection, recorded live at the University of Maryland in 1986. This collection spans almost a lifetime of work. A worthy companion tape, Tracking the Contradictions, also available from Watershed, picks up in 1981 where this fine collection leaves off.
