Poetry & Drama • 50 min. • Anthology • ©

Recorded shortly before Spender's death in 1995, this retrospective offers a selection of poems that spans his lifetime. Spender writes with quiet eloquence about his family, war and personal memories. Spender's voice--refined without being overly British--is well suited to his poems, calm and thoughtful. What makes this program even more enjoyable, however, are the anecdotes that Spender includes between poems, insights into the poetic process, as well as comments about poet-friends like W.H. Auden.
