A Pinch of Salt

Robert Graves

LibriVox volunteers bring you 19 different recordings of A Pinch of Salt by Robert Graves. Perhaps now best known as the author whose book of the same name inspired the Masterpiece Theater series I, Claudius, Robert Graves wrote prolifically throughout his 90 years, concentrating on myth in a scholarly vein. Many of his works were academically controversial. And yet, first and foremost, he considered himself a poet. This poem, which first appeared in 1920, shows Graves to be not only a careful and cautious man, but also exceedingly passionate (Summary by Alan Davis-Drake). This was the weekly poetry project for the week of June 3rd, 2007.
