University of Arizona Poetry Center- Recommendations from Audio Video Library Robert Creeley

Recommendations from Audio Video Library

Robert Creeley, December 4, 1963.

Robert Creeley’s 1963 appearance in Tucson for the Poetry Center’s Fall reading series is our earliest recorded reading. In it, the legendary poet reads from For Love, The Gold Diggers, and Words. Listen to Creeley’s performance of “I Know a Man” for the poet’s fascinating commentary on the meaning of this, arguably his most famous poem. http://avl.arizona.edu/index.php?reading_id=323

Robert Creeley returns to the Poetry Center, 39 years to the day after his 1963 reading, to read from his recently published Chax Press chapbook, Yesterdays.

The Poetry Center’s Audio Video Library features recordings from the Center’s long-running Reading Series and other readings presented under the auspices of the Center. The AVL includes multiple recordings of poets who have read for the Poetry Center numerous times over the years. Many of these recordings are accompanied by photographs from our archive. As we continue to digitize our recordings, these materials as well as new readings will be added to the AVL, so make sure you continue to visit us at http://avl.arizona.edu.
