1968. Introduced by John Hall Wheelock.

A special selection of poems from The Blue Estuaries, which, in the words of John Hall Wheelock, "presents the range and diversity of her achievement over a period of nearly a half century," and he calls Bogan "one of the finest lyric poets of our time--of any time."

Theodore Roethke writes of these poems that they "keep yielding new meanings, as all good poetry should... And the best work will stay in the language as long as the language survives."

Length: 43 min.
