lipstickJohn Wieners – Cocaine (0’58”). Recorded on reel-to-reel tape by Robert Creeley in Berkeley sometime after June 1965 and archived on PennSound (see “Part 2” of the “Reading of Various Works at Berkeley,” which begins with poems “from the original manuscript of The Hotel Wentley Poems“). • Earlier this summer, I featured Jeremy Prynne’s reading of this poem, which I include for comparison below. • Update: the audio file has now been segmented and labeled, here.

lipstickGeorge Oppen – Ballad (1’18”), from Of Being Numerous. Text, courtesy Languagehat. About Swan’s Island. Rachel Blau DuPlessis, writing about “Ballad” for Big Bridge. More of DuPlessis’s dialog with Oppen, as presented at Eric Baus’s To The Sound. • One of the tracks on a tape from Robert Creeley’s archive (4’16”), newly available on PennSound. The tape opens with Oppen’s remarks, clearly in medias res, on Paris and an unnamed reviewer who inspired his “Epigram: I have been insulted in St. Peter’s” (New Collected Poems 297). He then reads (at 0’48”) “Ballad” (NCP 207-08) and (at 2’25”) “Power, the Enchanted World” (NCP 204-06).
