About Poetry and Poets

“It is difficult
to get the news from poems
yet men die miserably every day
for lack
of what is found there.”

by William Carlos Williams

Poetry is food for the heart and soul, a catalyst for the imagination, and a powerful tool for transformation. A poem can sooth or unsettle, confirm or challenge. Pushed to the periphery of mainstream Western culture, poetry and the poetic view are subversive and essential.

The episodes on this album were recorded in collaboration with Joshua tree-based poets and others to celebrate National Poetry month (April in the USA).

“By teaching men to speak well, men learn to speak up and out.” ---James Hillman


released August 29, 2015

These programs were recorded by Dr. Catherine Svehla for Myth in the Mojave. Many thanks to the participating poets and poetry-lovers, and to Radio Free Joshua Tree for providing us with a home on internet radio.
