01 Rae Armantrout

On Silliman's Blog is a link to a Bookworm podcast from KCRW in Santa Monica, California. The person interviewing this poet is Michael Silverblatt, of whom I knew nothing until today. His questions are keen, but be sure your volume is high enough because he speaks more softly than she does. Try to listen carefully. The program has two segments. The poet reads one poem in each. Two ideas about poems are discussed: the poem that disappears and the poem that explodes (or seems that it might). Note what personal facts Armantrout shares. Also her words about our civilization.
