John Taggart reads “Twenty One Times”/ Myung Mi Kim link
Twenty One Times by John Taggart was my pick for the Wave Books Poetry Politic blog.
Lately, I have been thinking about the importance of segmenting recordings of individual poems that appear within larger files such as interviews or entire readings. This was one that I loved from Leonard Schwartz’ great radio program XCP: Cross Cultural Poetics. Taggart reads from his book “When The Saints” on the same episode. It’s a great conversation as well: XCP #43
Tonight I am working on excerpting a Myung Mi Kim recording for the same site. It is interesting but difficult to try to parse the file in ways that correspond to her texts because Kim often reads “across her work.” I am focusing on an Amherst reading from a few years ago but I love this 1996 SFSU reading
