Publisher's Summary

For my way of thinking, the work of a poet is the result of a gift. This is especially true of a poet who writes poetry of faith. Robert H. Siegel of Maine, USA, is a man with a gift. He is also a man who writes poetry that reflects his faith while writing about God's creatures, animals and such, in a lovely way that a naturalist can love. So I believe.
This article-interview on Robert Siegel is another in an ongoing series of interviews with Anglican and Christian poets.

Late Siegel a fine poet with sense of humor

What made the experience of listening to Interview: Robert Siegel, poet of Maine, USA, Speaks on His Work the most enjoyable?

As the author of this lengthy interview Robert Siegel did an informative and colorful job so intelligently presented. The addendum of his poetry was a delight: the pig poem the best.

Who was your favorite character and why?

His contemplative sensibility struck me strongest and was a kind of character in itself. I enjoyed his mentioning the monk Bruno Barnhart, a kind of legend himself.

Have you listened to any of Ralph Morocco’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

He has done a number of narrations for me and is quite good. He is clear, and can emote in the right places but does not overdo it for his style is straighforward and documentary news.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I have difficulty listening to these kinds of things in one sitting. I want to savor them, for there is poetry in them and i go back and listen.

Any additional comments?

Since the original documentary interview appeared Church of England Newspaper, London and this audio book was narrated the poet passed away. Rest in peace Professor.
