Catching Life by the Throat

Catching Life by the Throat

Hart, Josephine
New York 2008

Following the hugely successful Josephine Hart Poetry Hours at the British Library where actors such as Roger Moore and Juliet Stevenson have read poetry from Auden to Eliot, from Larkin to Plath - comes the book and a complimentary CD. Catching Life by the Throat unites the sound, sense, and sensibility that lie at the heart of great poetry. It features eight great poets, with brief, accessible essays concerning their life and work and a selection of their poems, and it is accompanied by an 80-minute CD recorded live at the British Library: Ralph Fiennes reading Auden, Edward Fox reading Eliot, Roger Moore reading Kipling, Harold Pinter reading Larkin, and more. Whether you believe (like Robert Frost, who inspired the title) that poetry is a way of "taking life by the throat" or (like T. S. Eliot) that it "is one person talking to another," nobody does it better than the poets featured in this book.
