1985. Introduced by Howard Moss.
As Library Journal has noted of this recording, May Swenson's poems are "wellcrafted views of the outside world."
Many of the poems can be found in her remarkable collection, Nature, which was published posthumously in 1994. Anthony Hecht has said that Swenson was "one of the surest poets, clear-eyed and absolute in her delineations, inventive beyond any expectation, deeply American, highspirited,... [her] achievement is enormous, luminous, and generous."
