Matthews, William. Rising and Falling. Boston: Little, Brown & Co., 1979.
William Matthews reads poems from his collection Sleek for the Long Flight (1972). He also reads newer poems that would appear in Sticks & Stones (1975) and Rising and Falling (1979), together with several poems that would remain uncollected.
This reading takes place the year that James Wright's collection Two Citizens (1973) was published, and Wright reads extensively from that volume. Wright ends his reading with a poem that would be published in The Hudson Review that fall, but would otherwise remain uncollected.
