Poetz are Andy N and Myth the Poet (aka Keith)
Their mission to discuss some of the influences poetry wise and how this impacted on their own work and what made the writers tick, express themselves and how their work has stood the test of time over a series of new podcasts.
First of all, Emily Dickinson.
Born on December 10, 1830, in Amherst, Massachusetts, Emily Dickinson left school as a teenager, eventually living a reclusive life on the family homestead. There, she secretly created bundles of poetry and wrote hundreds of letters. Due to a discovery by sister Lavinia, Dickinson's remarkable work was published after her death—on May 15, 1886, in Amherst—and she is now considered one of the towering figures of American literature.
Poems read out during this session were:
1. I am nobody, who are you?
2. A bird came down the walk
3. I heard a fly buzz when I died.
4. Caus I could not stop for death
5. Success is the sweetest by those who don't succeed
