To hear where Larkin chooses to stress a word is an education:

The Sunday Sessions CD will give hours of pleasure.

Fantastic link, Badge! This is like what we do in PMO Audio! But seriously, it's great that this kind of stuff is available to hear a master read his own work. I've listened to a few recordings (Bowers, Frost). It's an exhilarating experience and a treasure that their voices have been captured this way.

Hi badge,

 

I enjoyed following the link you posted. The CD seems promising.

 

I once heard Joyce reading passages from his work in an audio link on google and like you've pointed out, the stress on words he used, was an eye-opener. There's a bit of scratching sound in the background but it all added to the magic of the moment.

 

 

Thank you.

I never managed to buy the CD and expected to hear Larkin thru the link given. However, I met him in person recently when he was one of the authors featured by the Good Thunder Reading Series offered by the local campus of Minnesota State Universities. He reads well and is quite entertaining.

 

I do have 3 CD's that come along with Poetry Speaks, , ElisePashen and Rebekah Presson Mossby, including poems read by 23 poets, from Tennyson to Plath and bio sketches on same by Collins, Gioia, Graham, Hass, Olds' Strand and Wilbur, CPinsky, Dove and Gioia being the advisory Editors and Charles Osgood the narrator.

 

If there is interest, I'll try to say more.

 

BTW, should this topic not be named Oral Satisfaction? :blush:

Old men like me should never be in a hurry and let their recall ability play them false. I met Larking many yers ago instead of recently, but confused him with someone else whose name sounds similar.

 

Do you know why I could not 'reach' the link you gave? I sure would like to hear him read his work.

 

As for aural, that was a failed joke in part due to that I was first struc by the whim it could well have been a derivative of aura, as in "there wa a special aura that followed him wherever he went>" My sincere apologies.

Thank you, Badge for sharing the link. I am checking often that link and I enjoy listening the uploaded readings.

For me these websites prove again and again the 'variety' in poetry and not to be lose individuality and be imprisoned by one tribe's way of expression.
