Better Than 90% of Poetry Readings

Al Filreis facilitates a discussion on two later poems by Wallace Stevens. To me, such a mode of teaching is more collaborative and even entertaining (as performance art) than the vast majority of literary readings. Next time I get to teach creative writing or literature, I hope it can get filmed. Equally importantly, if I am ever involved in a "group literary reading" again (in a non-musical context), I'd like to make it more like this. Choose only one or two works and talk about them. It makes me feel more engaged in a present.
