KEVIN READS STUFF: Archaic Torso of Apollo by Rainer Maria Rilke

I chose this poem because I learned it back in college. I think it was in Philosophy. I think it was something about phenomenology, or about human experience. The lessons are not as clear now as they were before, but the memory of this poem still stays. I hope you enjoy.


KEVIN READS: Desiderata by Max Ehrmann

A friend of mine once suggested that I record my voice as I was reading stuff. It’s not Goldilocks and the Three Bears like he wanted, but it’s a start.

I chose Desiderata because I used to hear it on the radio. My father also introduced the poem to me when I was younger. I only realized its value recently. I hope that this readinng was able to give it some justice.
