As I recall Frank Baxter, he originally ran a TV show on poetry. He
didn't like convoluted modern modes. He preferred poetry that made a
clear statement.  That said, he could discuss the technique the poet
used as it reinforced the subject and he gloried in the beauty of the
metaphors and language. He also analyzed a number of Shakespeare's
sonnets. I wonder if his tapes survive.

The University of Georgia owns a number of the Frank Baxter videos
(probably these were nominated for Peabody Awards).  For more
information, go to http://gil.uga.edu and search for Frank C. Baxter.
Our holdings are generally strong, thanks to the Peabody Awards!
