Barry Goldensohn

Barry Goldensohn is a Professor of English and Poetry at Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, New York. He was the Dean of the School of Humanities and Arts at Hampshire College in Amherst, Massachusetts, and has also taught at Goddard College and the Writer's Workshop at the University of Iowa. He is the author of five collections of poetry.

Earlier this week I asked him what he was reading. His reply:
Today I'm reading Diary of a Bad Year and repeatedly Victor Hugo's poem "Booz Endormi," trying to figure out what makes it so powerful in spite of itself.
Read, or listen to Barry Goldensohn read, his poem, "Walking in Fog."
