Prayers from the Ark: French and English Poems

Prayers from the Ark: French and English Poems

In 1947, Carmen Bernos de Gasztold (1919 – 1995) wrote a collection of poems entitled “Prieres Dans L’Arche.” This collection was subsequently translated into English as “Prayers from the Ark” by Rumer Godden. The 27 poems (prayers) represent the imagined hopes, fears, and aspirations of the animals aboard Noah’s ark. Stage actress Marian Seldes reads the poems, first in their original French and then in English. The liner notes provide the complete text of the recording.
