Voice On Record

Episode 2: American Modernists

This edition of Voice On Record includes clips of Gertrude Stein and E.E. Cummings reciting poetry and prose. William Faulkner’s Nobel Prize acceptance speech resonates remarkably strongly today, and Robert Frost’s poetry provides a welcome rural counterbalance. Additionally, the programme contains sounds from a New York Carnival circa 1955.
