Taking Off Emily Dickinson’s Clothes: Poetry Podcast #8

I’m here with a new poetry podcast for you on this lovely Friday. I think the title above says it all, so I will leave you to your listening.

THE PODCAST – – – – –

{Listen to previous podcasts}

-Here is a link to the poem I read, in writing: “Taking Off Emily Dickinson’s Clothes” by Billy Collins.

-Here is one poem by Emily Dickinson that is referenced in the Billy Collins poem.

Just for hilarity’s sake, here’s a video (ooh, and another) of Billy Collins reading other amazing poems. Wow, I was doubled over and almost in tears with these ones. Seriously. You will see why. Oh wow! Poetry, I love you so!

    My poetry group in California helped sponsor Collins’ appearance in Arcata a few years back. We got to sit and chat with him for quite a while before and after his reading. The group and I were stunned. He was a very nice fella, and his reading was better than most of the musical performances at the university that year.

    Lovely! I would have never known what the context of that poem was without you. You gave it new depth.
