Lorna Goodison's poetry on mp3

Lorna Goodison was one of my creative writing teachers at U of M--I guess that was 9 years ago. I still see her around Ann Arbor a lot, and I often stop to say hello. She is originally from Jamaica, and although I thought she was a great teacher, I would have attended class just to hear her wonderful accent.

Now you can hear her too, if you are so inclined: poems by Lorna Goodison. I recommend listening to "The Wandering Jew and the Arab Merchant on the Island of Allspice."
