Narrator Bronson Pinchot gives an academic tone to this in-depth exploration of the life and work of American poet Elizabeth Bishop. His voice is a deep, warm yet formal baritone that conjures up corduroy jackets, leather chairs in libraries, and pipes. We are drawn into Bishop's early life, set against the backdrop of the early twentieth century. Listeners will immerse themselves in the rich details of Bishop's parents' history as well. This unique program overall may be best enjoyed by fans of Bishop's poetry. Pinchot's commendable job of making engaging what would otherwise be dry material enhances the print edition.
