- 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.
