Her Kind by Anne Sexton

I’ve already put up some Anne Sexton on here in the past, but today I wanted to share a recording of her reading one of her most famous poems – Her Kind.  Sexton felt her poetry, her words, on a whole other level.  She turned them into performance pieces, often accompanying the recited words with background music.  While this version doesn’t include music, you can hear how haunting and intense her voice is.
