Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Cinema has been influencing and inspiring our country's poets almost since its inception a century ago. Hundreds of poets have written about movies including Delmore Schwartz on Marilyn Monroe, Jack Kerouac on Harpo Marx and Maya Angelou on Gone With The Wind, among many others.

At the same time, movie actors and directors have been influenced and inspired by poets and poetry, if not writing it themselves. The Poem I Turn To: Actors & Directors Present Poetry That Inspires Them represents the best loved poems by celebrated American movie actors and directors, along with their notes and comments describing how those poems, or poetry in general, has affected their lives. The included audio CD features Hollywood personalities reading their chosen works.

On the included audio CD, hear Hollywood present their favorite poems:

--Alan Arkin reads Rilke's The Man Watching

--John Lithgow reads W. B. Yeats' The Lake Isle at Innisfree

--Michael O'Keefe reads Ezra Pound's In a Station at the Metro

--Mary Louise Parker reads Mark Strand's Keeping Things Whole

--Lili Taylor reads Robert Frost's The Road Not Taken

...and many more
