A Poetry Reading By Robert Fillman

Standard

I had the great pleasure and honor yesterday of attending a poetry reading at the Emmaus, PA Public Library by an extraordinary poet and a friend, Robert Fillman.

He spoke about poetry and read his excellent poems from his chapbook November Weather Spell with a delivery that make it clear  that poems should be read aloud and heard. It is doable simply to read them silently, but hearing the words brings life to the rhythm and images. Robb’s delivery filled the words with power and meaning.

Robb is a truly excellent poet, and I hope his work continues to be acknowledged. I think, in my not so humble opinion,  that he is, right now, one of our country’s finest poets.

Please consider buying a copy of this book. You will enjoy it, and you will have the pleasure of having an emerging poet’s initial book!

  1. I do agree that poetry benefits from being read aloud by someone with the voice and understanding. I have had three of my poems read by a Yorkshire poet and it was an great experience.
    I wish Robert Fillman more wonderful evening like the one you describe.
