Anthology: Poems by William Carlos Williams, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Emily Brontë, Alexander Pope, Roy Fisher – Human Voices Wake Us
An episode from 1/18/22: Our anthology series presents a handful of poems from the past five centuries. How much or how little has our language changed since Roy Fisher remembered the London Blitz, Coleridge drew the greatest lesson he ever did from nature, and Emily Brontë experienced a haunting evening?
The poems are:
- The Entertainment of War, by Roy Fisher (1930-2017)
- Danse Russe, by William Carlos Williams (1883-1963)
- “The night is darkening round me,” by Emily Brontë (1818-1848)
- Work Without Hope, by Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772-1834)
- Ode on Solitude, by Alexander Pope (1688-1744)
