Bill Murray, perhaps the world's favorite comic actor, here reads two poems by the great American modernist poet Wallace Stevens--including the beautifully titled "A Rabbit as King of the Ghosts."
Like Murray, Stevens fervently maintained a "regular guy" persona--despite his (literary) stardom. He went to work every day as a lawyer at an insurance company in Hartford, CT, often walking there and composing the poems in his head. If a biography were made of Stevens' life--and there could be, he was once in a fistfight with Ernest Hemingway!--Bill Murray might be the ideal choice. Stevens' dual life as a poet and businessman is perfect for Murray, who is so good at showing us the duality of our natures, how we are many things at once.
