Poets are often asked "Where do you find your inspiration?" Sometimes the answer is a person--a mentor or teacher whose words and example are life-changing. In this Giving Voice, we hear poet Maurice Kenny talk about the century-old Mohawk elder, teacher, storyteller, activist and naturalist Ray Fadden, and hear a few of the poems he inspired.  Go to full article

Giving Voice: Rev. Max Coots

There's a long tradition in English literature of preachers who are also poets. Our guest on Giving Voice, the Rev. Max Coots of Canton, is a fine example of the type. His well-crafted sermons are collected in the volume Leaning Against the Wind, and his meditative poetry can be found in Seasons of the Self, and View From a Tree. Unlike many writers--who come to poetry early, and carry on throughout life--Coots' poetry grew out of his experience in ministry. And on retirement, his creative spirit moved on to other outlets. He talked with Dale Hobson about how poetry came into his life, and how it went out again.  Go to full article

Giving Voice: Poetry for Peace at SLU

There has been poetry of war through all of history, celebrating glory, valor and conquest, sanctifying the sacrificed. But as modern warfare has become more mechanized and indiscriminate, modern poets have increasingly turned their pens toward themes of peace. At St. Lawrence University, poets, readers and listeners--both town and gown--gather monthly before a fireplace in huge overstuffed chairs to share their own work--or anything else that has caught their ear. While some in February's gathering touched on the politics of the current war, Dale Hobson was struck by how broad the landscape of peace becomes, when filtered through poetic imagination. The next Poetry for Peace reading takes place March 7, at 4:30 pm, in the Winston Room of the Student Center at St. Lawrence University.  Go to full article
