Description:
Audio recording of Sidney Lanier's poem The Marshes of Glynn, read by David Bottoms. A photograph a Glynn County, Georgia marsh illuminated by sunset accompanies the recording. The poem begins with a rhythmic description of the thick marsh as the narrator feels himself growing and connecting with the sinews of the marsh itself. As his vision expands seaward, the speaker recognizes that the marshes and sea, in their vastness, are the expression of God's greatness and are filled with power and mystery.
