Fire, Fire, Burning Bright: Six Programs for Young People on the Nature and Origins of Poetry
Written and Narrated by Richard Lewis.
Six fifteen minute audiotapes for young people based the themes of the sky, the sea, time, dreams, death, and love. Each tape explores how these themes have been expressed by poets from cultures throughout the world. An integral part of the series are the voices and poetry of students at the Louis Armstrong Intermediate School in Queens, New York, discussing the poetic materials of each theme. Ideal for helping young people think about how and why poems are made, as well as a way to encourage them to write their own poetry.
