Program
Poetry Breaks for Schools and Libraries: Galway Kinnell
Series Description

2-5 minute filler programs with New England area writers reading their poetry. Poets include Martin Espada, Galway Kinnell, Sharon Olds. Series release date: 1988

Program Description

This is one of three tapes specifically designed for use in high schools. The finished tape consists of four poems, each briefly introduced by Kinnell. The poems are: “Wait” “Daybreak” “Prayer” “Saint Francis and the Sow”

Following these poems is a segment called “Since you asked...," in which Kinnell answers questions that students might typically ask a poet. The questions are: When did I start writing? When did I know I wanted to be a poet? Where do I get ideas? What do I write with? What is poetry anyway?

The source tapes include multiple takes of the poems and questions.
