Poets on Poets: Halsey Reading Beddoes

Printer-friendly versionSend by email

This week, Poets on Poets MP3 archive presents more Beddoes: Alan Halsey reading "Song in the Air." Halsey's edition of the later text of Beddoes's Death's Jest-Book was published by West House Books in 2003, and his several essays on Beddoes's life and work have appeared in various journals and pamphlets.

Here's the poem:

The moon doth mock and make me crazy,
And midnight tolls her horrid claim
On ghostly homage. Fie, for shame!
Deaths, to stand painted there so lazy.
There's nothing but the stars about us,
And they're no tell-tales, but shine quiet:
Come out, and hold a midnight riot,
Where no mortal fool dare flout us:
And, as we rattle in the moonlight pale;
Wanderers shall think 'tis the nightingale.

The William Blake Archive is pleased to announce that the Archive has been designated an Approved Edition by the Modern Language Association. This is the first time the organization has awarded its "seal" to an electronic edition. The MLA's Committee on Scholarly Editions has been fostering rigorous editorial standards for printed editions since 1976. David V. Erdman's Complete Poetry and Prose of William Blake received the MLA seal in 1981. The Committee's guidelines for electronic editions were first published in 2004 as part of a major revision of the Committee's editorial guidelines; see also Burnard, O'Keefe, and Unsworth, Electronic Textual Editing, MLA/TEI, forthcoming 2006). Previously, the Archive was the recipient of the MLA's Prize for a Distinguished Scholarly Edition, 2003.
