Our first fall meeting: Blake, Stevens

It’s the fall of 2011, and we’re back. Once again, we bring you the tortured voices of poets accompanied by guitar.

William Blake’s “The Garden of Love”:

It wouldn’t be Parallel Octave back in session without yet another recording of Wallace Stevens’s “Emperor of Ice-Cream”:

"I went to the Garden of Love..."

[In keeping with our tradition of being unable to record the first session of each ParOct year, no audio was captured at this session. However, the poems were recorded at a subsequent session, and audio consequently posted.]

Poems read at session (some old favorites, and a new one):
1. “The Emperor of Ice Cream” by Wallace Stevens
2. “Animula” by T.S. Eliot
3. “The Garden of Love” by William Blake

The original meeting was at Daniel Schwartz’s house in Charles Village, on Sunday, September 11, from 1-2:30 PM. Present: Sandy Koll (vox), Nancy (vox), Danny Schwartz (guitar, loops, dir.)

The sound linked to this post was recorded at [date]
