Small, quiet moments in an otherwise turbulent world--that's what lyric poetry promises. In this podcast, I read, work through, and try to uinderstand one lyric poem in each podcast. The poems are mostly from the nineteenth-century until now, mostly chosen from big-name authors, with occasional new surprises in the mix. Join me for a little antidote to the world around us.
What happens when you're on the Niagara River? What happens when
you forget the falls are ahead? Dinner, apparently.
About the Podcast
Mark Scarbrough hosts Lyric Life and devotes each podcast to one lyric poem--reading it, exploring it, softly searching for its meaning, all before putting it back together for one last read. You may have read some of these poems in college. Or you may know nothing about poetry. No matter, come share a passion for lyric poetry.
