Poet: Louise Glück

The Untrustworthy Speaker by Louise Glück

Poem by Louise Glück — text is here (sorry for the popups)

The video credits say “created by: Jackie, Jaclyn, Mat” — no doubt without the knowledge or approval of the poet. I hope they don’t get a takedown notice from Glück’s publisher, because I think this really expands upon the message of the poem, as the best video poems seem to do. Some intelligibility is of course sacrificed with this spliced-recitation technique, but I think it’s worth it.
