Off the Shelf - Episode 4: Poetry with Sarah Gridley

Weather Eye Open

I am happy to welcome Case Western Reserve University Lecturer and Poet in Residence Sarah Gridley to Off the Shelf for episode 4. In the episode, we discuss Sarah's compilation of poems entitled Weather Eye Open, published by the University of California Press in 2005.

During the interview, we discuss influences, during which Sarah reads a poem by Wallace Stevens that had an early and profound effect on her, entitled "The Idea of Order at Key West". This link will take you to the text of the poem in a new window, if you would like to read along.

The podcast can be heard by clicking on the player below.

In addition, the podcast can be downloaded as an mp3 file or iTunes-friendly m4a version. To download either file, right-click (control-click on the Mac) the link below the player and select "save file as..." When the file is downloaded, you can listen to it with the audio playing software or device of your choice.
