Anselm Hollo’s PennSound page consists of four readings, one each from 2001, 1999, 1991, and a vintage recording (made sometime between 1969 and 1980) of a brief reading from The Empress Hotel Poems.  In helping to memorialize the poet, we at PennSound have segmented each of these readings. Here we present the poems he read in Boulder on January 18, 2001. But Jacket2 readers are urged to visit his PennSound author page for more.
