Phillip Levine, Poet Lauriette

The Poet Laurette can do some good work, promoting poetry, so can mostly ignore the boring conventional stuff that got them the job. But have to say, while Levine can be ... more sentimental than I like, and his poetics are conventional... I really like the way he reads his work.

No Dreaded Poets Voice... reads like he speaks, and the poems come out that way... so you think, not bad, not bad... and he earned his working class cred. I give the guy my respect for the job. Congratulations!
