All that money on a college education, and now I’m getting my poetry criticism from Ad Age:
“Dafoe’s delivery is, as usual, gravelly, ponderous and intriguing. Initially, the repetition of ‘plain’ and ‘same’ feels like it is building toward something ghostly and mysterious, but somehow the spell is broken around the line, ‘Where plain met fruits with strangely names.’”
Take a listen. Don’t you hear some Dr Seuss?
