LibriVox volunteers bring you 20 recordings of After Long Grief by Madison Cawein (1867-1914).
This was the Weekly Poetry project for July 22nd to July 29th, 2012.
Madison Cawein was a poet from Louisville, Kentucky. His father made patent medicines from herbs. Cawein thus became acquainted with and developed a love for local nature as a child. His output was thirty-six books and 1,500 poems. His writing presented Kentucky scenes in a language echoing Percy Bysshe Shelley and John Keats. He soon earned the nickname the “Keats of Kentucky”.
