My pick for this month is one such poem by a new poet where the economy of words and vivid images strike a beautiful scene.

News in Poetry Walking the Earth With Wallace Stevens, The Poet of Our Climate
Posted by Ozymandias on Thursday, October 02, 2014 (03:24:00)

Given his fascinating, perverse, and outré world of verse, where “man is the intelligence of his soil,/The sovereign ghost … the Socrates/Of snails, musician of pears,” Stevens never seemed the companionable sort of poet you could put in your pocket and wander in the country with the way you might with, say, Keats and Coleridge.

This multimedia lecture and recital features the poetry of Alexander Pushkin, revered Russian poet from the early nineteenth century. Pushkin's poetry inspired hundreds of songs and operas by composers ranging from his own contemporaries to Benjamin Britten.

The performance traces Pushkin's remarkable life, reflected in the art songs of Glinka, Rimsky-Korsakov, Rachmaninoff, Medtner and others.Link!
