The ' paleface ' tradition of American poetry-the sophisticated, cosmopolitan manner of, say, Wallace Stevens-is readily understood by English readers. The ' redskin ' tradition, represented by a poet such as William Carlos Williams, is not so easily accepted here.
Professor Parkinson discusses recent volumes by Williams, Allen Ginsberg , Josephine Miles , and the English poet
Charles Tomlinson , whose work, he believes, is in this tradition. Mr. Ginsberg and Mr. Tomlinson read their own work.
Reader, Josephine Burge ,
There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
