Frederick Seidel reads his poem "Violin"
"Listen to this poetry reading to hear the poet Frederick Seidel read his poem ""Violin,"" from his poetry collection Ooga-Booga. These poems of love, terror, rage, and desire are about a youthful slave owner and his aging slave, and both are the same man. This is the most tender, most savage collection yet from “the most frightening American poet ever” (Calvin Bedient, Boston Review).
