Read an Excerpt from Voice of the Poet: Randall Jarrell

Read two poems by Randall Jarrell


Our poetry critic Ernest Hilbert writes of Randall Jarrell: "He was a very American writer. He loved his sports cars, his cats, and Hollywood; he wrote some of the best war poems of the century, though he never fired a shot himself; his late career recollections of childhood resemble William Wordsworth's in their nuance and William Blake's in their rich complexity."

Jarrell's recordings are the latest addition to our ongoing Voice of the Poet feature. In this issue of Bold Type, read an essay on Randall Jarrell and listen to audio recordings of the poet reading his work.
