Talking about John Wieners's Poems on PoemTalk.

Allen Ginsberg with John Wieners in 1972

This past fall, I was delighted to travel to the Kelly Writers House at UPenn to participate in Al Filreis's fantastic podcast series PoemTalk. I joined Al and Ammiel Alcalay and Danny Snelson to discuss John Wieners's poem "Acts of Youth" in a performance recorded in 1990. 

Here is a discussion of our discussion with links.



If you're so impatient that you want to jump right to the episode, then here is a direct link. Go now! There's not a moment to lose. 


If you don't know it, PoemTalk is great series of discussions of specific poems from the ever expanding PennSound collection of modern and contemporary poetry and poetry-related recordings. The project is directed byAl Filreis and Charles Bernstein at UPenn.
