1915: A Rhapsodic Tribute to James Elroy Flecker


Rhapsodize Audio is pleased to present the following selection of Flecker’s
 verse, most of which dates from his mature years. This rhapsody is divided into two sections:


A selection of twenty-six short poems, concluding with A Sacred 
Dialogue, Flecker’s rather mocking
 comment on religious war;
Flecker’s translation of part of Book 6 of the Aeneid, in which Aeneas 
visits the underworld.


Your rhapsodes are Elizabeth Klett,
 Denis Daly, Caprisha Page, Winston
Tharp, Alan Weyman, Bob Gonzalez and Carol Box.
