This podcast opens with James Thurber's "The Elephant that Challenged the World" -- no explication should be needed. This follows selections from Ilan Stavas' wonderful collection and translations of Pablo Neruda's Odes --All the Odes. Having climbed the Andes of Poetry, why not take on the Alps as well? We follow with the first of Rainer Maria Rilke's Duino Elegies. A sample of readings from Lucile Clifton and E. Ethelbert Miller close the show, along with Rilke's The Death of Moses.
Music is mostly from an later acoustic bootleg of Jackson Brown and David Lindley in Belgium.
