    John Harrison's last comments on poems and poets

    • POEM: The Box by Lascelles Abercrombie (11/17/2007 1:26:00 AM)

      I first heard 'The Box' read on, of all places, the television show, Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In' some time in the early 1970's. It was read by actor Henry Gibson. Performed simply and strait-faced. No gags, no punch-lines. He just walked out on a simple set, read the poem and walked off.
      As I recall, the producers were deluged with requests for a copies of the poem. I, a young teen-aged boy from middle America sent my stamped self-addressed envelope and obtained a copy in a few weeks. It had to about 1970 or 1971, as I recall, I recited it in English class that spring. It is wonderful to find it again. Thank you.
