Customer Review

on February 29, 2012
I can't figure out how Bernstein and other editors make certain essay selections to become the spoken word guru scholars/editors. Marjorie Perloff's essay is brilliant, nevertheless. Maybe the editor's taste is past it or no longer relavent to a younger crowd, for the most part. I recommend Voicing American Poetry: Sound and Performance from the 1920s to the Present for secondary material on this phenomenon. She takes a fresh look that seems more relevant. For those who want to "listen" to indispensable spoken word by a master of the genre Hedwig Gorski, tune into Send in the Clown: Live Radio Broadcasts of Performance Poet Hedwig Gorski. A woman, yes, and that may be why old-schoolers are out of touch with what is really going on. This book by so-called performance poet Gorski Poetique: Speak-Songbook for CD Send in the Clown (Micro Books, Volume 1) does have a quote from the trans-generation Perloff on the back: "Delightful." So between Gorski and Perloff, there may be hope for the old-schoolers yet.
