Vox Populi: A Public Sphere for Politics and Poetry

Audio: Woody Allen tells a joke about the Lost Generation (rare recording — 1965)

Riffing on The Lost Generation, Woody Allen imagines himself back in time, carousing with Hemingway, Gertrude Stein, Picasso, F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald, and famed Spanish bullfighter Manolete. It’s interesting that this idea returned five decades later as the plot device of Midnight in Paris, one of Allen’s best recent films.

Allen is reportedly embarrassed by his early years as a stand-up comedian, so recordings like this one rarely surface.

    Hi Gail, Did you send me two poems about Ephphatha?

    I have only the one that starts “By the sea”.

    If there’s a second one, could you send it?
