This hour on Here on Earth: Radio Without Borders, Jean Feraca and her guests discuss Maxine Kumin and her poetry.
- Molly Peacock, poet and author of five books of poetry, including "Cornucopia: New & Selected Poems"
- Elizabeth 6/23/08: "I was shocked and disappointed that during the Summer Solstice Poetry Circle of the Air program rebroadcast on 6/20/2008, that during the reading of the focal poem, 'The Excrement Poem,' that there was some editing done toward the end of the poem. I would think that since the whole theme of the poem is shit, that we could actually use the word. It was referring to the product. It was not being used as a swear word. I think that this was someone being overly politically correct, that we are so 'civilized' that we can't even say 'shit' when we are talking about cleaning out a horse stable."
