1996. Introduced by John Ashbery.
Tate gave this superbly comic reading in connection with his receipt of the second Wallace Stevens Award. He is also the recent winner of the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award, "testifying to the broad appeal of his wonderfully eccentric and generous poetry," as John Ashbery has said.
Included are "How the Pope is Chosen" and "An Eland, In Retirement," from Worshipful Company of Fletchers, and numerous poems from his book, The Shroud of the Gnome.
