“A Man Lost by a River” by Michael Blumenthal
In this episode of The Renaissance of Men’s “Poetry for Men” series, Will Spencer reads “A Man Lost By A River” by the American poet Michael Blumenthal.
This rich and evocative poem asks us a question, “What if we didn’t truly know ourselves?” What if somewhere inside there was a voice longing to be heard? Where might we find that voice, and what might it have to say?
Blumenthal both asks and answers those questions in this poem, and as his life story illustrates, he knows what he’s talking about.
