Edgar Lee Masters on Poetry Monday on EPIC Radio

Poetry Monday on EPIC Radio
Edgar Lee Masters
7:30 AM
Call IN number: (304) 278-4113

Edgar Lee Masters was born on August 23, 1868 in Garnett, Kansas, where his father had briefly moved his family in order to set up a law practice. Soon, however, the family returned to the western Illinois farmlands, and Masters attended public schools in Petersburg and Lewistown. He attended Knox College for a year but was forced to withdraw because of his family's financial difficulties. He read law with his father and was admitted to bar in 1891. He practiced law for nearly thirty years, first in Chicago and later in New York. For several years beginning in 1903,  he was the law partner of Clarence Darrow. Darrow is remembered today for his defense of John Thomas Scopes who was prosecuted for teaching evolution in Tennessee in 1925. Masters published several books and plays, some pseudonymously to protect his legal practice, before his masterwork, Spoon River Anthology, appeared in 1915. The book is a series of over 200 short free verse dramatic monologues spoken in the voices of deceased residents of the fictional town of Spoon River. The collection was considered scandalous because of its frank treatment of topics such as sex, suicide, abortion, blasphemy, and hypocrisy. It proved wildly popular, going through several editions rapidly, and became a classic in American literature.  Although Masters continued to write throughout the rest of his life, he would never again equal the critical and popular success of Spoon River Anthology. He died on March 5, 1950 in a convalescent home in Philadelphia, PA. His body was returned to Petersburg, Illinois, to be buried. 

This week's featured poem is "Fiddler Jones," from Spoon River Anthology. 


The earth keeps some vibration going
There in your heart, and that is you.
And if the people find you can fiddle, 
Why, fiddle you must, for all your life. 
What do you see, a harvest of clover?
Or a meadow to walk through to the river? 
The wind's in the corn; you rub your hands 
For beeves hereafter ready for market;
Or else you hear the rustle of skirts
Like the girls when dancing at Little Grove. 
To Cooney Potter a pillar of dust
Or whirling leaves meant ruinous drouth;
They looked to me like Red-Head Sammy
Stepping it off, to "Toor-a-Loor."
How could I till my forty acres
Not to speak of getting more, 
With a medley of horns, bassoons and piccolos
Stirred in my brain by crows and robins
And the creak of a wind-mill—only these? 
And I never started to plow in my life
That some one did not stop the in the road
And take me away to a dance or picnic.
I ended up with forty acres;
I ended up with a broken fiddle—
And a broken laugh, and a thousand memories, 
And not a single regret.

7:30 AM  TODAY -- JOHN CASE AND Karen Caudle on all things Shepherdstown

WITH David Manthos from SKYTRuth.ORG and JIM Probst from Citizens Climate lobby

CALL IN LINE: 304-885-0708

Citizens climate Lobby is an international organization started in San Diego in 2007 with presently 341 chapters in the US, [5in WV] and at least a dozen other countries. We work to create the political will for a livable world. We do this through outreach, such as the event on Thurs. as well as letters and opeds in print media and radio and TV. Are primary focus is our proposal known as Fee and Dividend which would put a steadily rising fee on carbon emissions with the monies collected returned in the form of a dividend to US
households in equal shares. 

The effect of this would be to make fossil fuel produced energy more expensive and  renewables would become more competitive and ultimately rise to the top as the most efficient and sustainable way to produce our energy needs. We anticipate that our
proposal will be introduced as a bill in the next congress and we are looking for all hands on deck to help promote this first.

Janet Harrison introduces Poet Louise Gluck

At 9:00 AM, Stewart Acuff joins us for some Labor Day Poems!

Here is Janet's introduction to Louise Gluck:

Born in New York City on April 22, 1943, poet Louise Glück has received almost every major award in American poetry, including the Bollingen Prize and the Wallace Stevens Award from the Academy of American Poets. Early in her childhood on Long Island, she knew she wanted to write,  and she submitted her first book when she was only 13 or 14. It was promptly rejected. Later, at Columbia University, she studied poetry with Stanley Kunitz. Her first book of poetry, Firstborn (New American Library) was published in 1968. Since then she has published numerous books, including Triumph of Achilles (Ecco Press, 1985), winner of the National Book Critics Award; The Wild Iris (Ecco Press, 1992), winner of the Pulitzer Prize; and Faithful and Virtuous Night (Farrar, Straus, and Giroux, 2014), winner of the National Book Award. Her first eleven books of poetry were re-issued in one large volume, Poems 1962-2012 (Farrar, Straus, and Giroux, 2012). Additionally, she has published a book of essays on poetry, Proofs and Theories (Ecco Press, 1994), which won the PEN/Martha Albrand Award for Nonfiction. She edited the 1993 volume of Best American Poetry, and from 2003-2010 she was the judge for the Yale Series of Younger Poets. Teaching has  been another major vocation for her; she has taught at several colleges and universities, most recently at Yale. She also served as poet laureate of the United States in 2003. 

In an interview published by The Academy of Achievement, Glück stated, "I write to discover meaning. I want experience to mean something. It's less a matter of who I am than that idea that nothing should be wasted. Something must come of it. Writing is a kind of revenge against circumstance too: bad luck, loss, pain. If you make something out of it, then you've no longer been bested by these events." 

This week's featured poem is "Lullaby" from The Wild Iris (Ecco Press, 1992). 


Time to rest now; you have had
enough excitement for the time being.

Twilight, then early evening. Fireflies
in the room, flickering here and there, here and there, 
and summer's deep sweetness filling the open window.

Don't think of these things anymore. 
Listen to my breathing, your own breathing
like the fireflies, each small breath 
a flare in which the world appears. 

I've sung to you long enough in the summer night. 
I'll win you over in the end; the world can't give you
this sustained vision.

You must be taught to love me. Human beings must be taught to love 
silence and darkness.
