Galway Kinnell came to New Zealand on a sponsored poetry reading tour many years ago. I wish that I had seen and heard him.He writes in a natural style, never affected, and he always expresses the message he wants to transmit. A true poet of the modern world, not the past.

The reader is terrible. It distracts from the writing. It sounds lie it is artificial.
