Poetic Quid Pro Quo

Another poet reads your poem, then you read it. How does it sound, does it say what you wanted it to say? Then you read someone else’s poem

Who Do You Love? Pablo Neruda
Broadcast Live: Comcast 66/966 & Verizon 29/30

Tuesday July 7, 2015
6:30pm (doors open at 5:30pm)

A live poetry talk show and cover open mic, broadcast live at 6:30(doors open at 5:30pm) on the first Tuesday of each month. It is a discussion/presentation on the life and work of the month’s featured (LOVED) poet followed by audience members reading their favorite poem by the featured poet, and one of their own poems.

“No writer of world renown is perhaps so little known to North Americans as Chilean poet Pablo Neruda,” observed New York Times Book Review critic Selden Rodman. Numerous critics have praised Neruda as the greatest poet writing in the Spanish language during his lifetime. A difficulty lies in the fact that Neruda’s poetry is very hard to translate; his works available in English represent only a small portion of his total output. Nonetheless, declared John Leonard in the New York Times, Neruda “was, I think, one of the great ones, a Whitman of the South.”

Host: Warren Longmire
Guests: David Escobr-Martin, Anne-Adele Wight, Tamara Oakman
