So stay tuned.
In the meantime, a small anecdotal entertainment
James Wright and Anthony Hecht gave a reading at Wayne State many years ago, and next day they had to rise at the crack of dawn in order to catch early flights home. Shortly after getting into the taxi, and without any warning, Hecht began to intone:
Yet once more, O ye Laurels, and once more
Ye Myrtles brown, with Ivy never-sere,
I come to pluck your Berries harsh and crude
And with forc'd fingers rude,
Shatter your leaves before the mellowing year ...
And he didn't stop till he reached the poem's end, a hundred and ninety or so lines, and many miles later. This would have been remarkable enough, but what made it all the more remarkable was the fact that the whole performance was done in the voice of W.C. Fields!
Fields was allowed a few interpolative comments now and again. After the lines "He must not float upon his watery bier/Unwept, and welter to the parching wind,/Without the meed of some melodious tear" Hecht would pause, and Fields would observe: 'That's very sad - that part about the watery beer.'
Apparently, Wright was so overwhelmed, he could do no more at the end than whisper, 'Thank-you.'
