News at Eleven: A musician entranced by the chorus

of poetic voices around him (Dorothea Lasky, Joshua Beckman, Hoa Nguyen, Mary Ruefle, D.A. Powell, David Berman and a gang of others), [Michael] Zapruder set out to put some favorite recent poems to music. The hazards of freighting poetry with "emotional ground” are not lost on Zapruder--it's as though he sets the poems free into unfamiliar pop habitats to find their own way.
