Of poets and poetry

8 episodes, 1959, META

From WNET:

"These programs are designed to heighten an adult audience’s appreciation of poetry and stimulate further enjoyment by introducing excellent poetry and the poets who created it. Poets were selected because of their ability to read dramatically as well as their stature as poets. Stephen Spender, Ogden Nash, John Crowe Ranson and others read their works and offer comment and analysts. They are interviewed by poets and professors, such as Barry Ulanow of Barnard College, and Galway Kinnell now at the University of Teheran. The series was produced by Barbara Davidson in cooperation with the Poetry Center of the 92nd Street YMHA of New York City."
