David Borodin reads "To the One of Fictive Music" by Wallace Stevens

Poet and writer David Borodin

Poetic wordplay creates a "rich tapestry of sound" to invoke a musical muse

David Borodin is a retired art appraiser, originally from Philadelphia but now living in Twin Lakes, Idaho.

He identifies his poetic work with the so-called New Formalist tradition, with its renewed attention to the use of meter, rhyme, and stanzaic symmetry as instruments of effective patterning. Although his poems are inspired by a wide range of subjects, including music, visual art, literature and love, his abiding interest in cognitive science provides a special focus for exploring through his poems the phenomenon of consciousness.

Although available in hardcopy as well, he makes all his poetry available to read for free on his website.
