Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Tracy K. Smith

Poetry & Drama • 1.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2007

Pulitzer Prize winner and Poet Laureate of the United States Tracy K. Smith has a voice that is almost as beautiful as the imagery in this second collection of her work. She uses her voice well to clarify the structure of each poem and avoid the tics (such as that rising lilt at the end of each line) that make so many poets poor readers of their own work. Her reading is helped, of course, by the outstanding quality of her poetry--which stands at the front of contemporary American literature. If you already know her work, this is a chance to hear her interpret it; if you don't, this is a chance to discover something wonderful. D.M.H.
