Sixty Morning Talks

A Reading/Discussion for Sixty Talks: Serial Interviews with Contemporary Authors by Andy Fitch, forthcoming from Ugly Duckling Presse, provides sixty transcribed interviews with poets releasing books in 2012. Rather than advance an overarching argument concerning “the state of poetry,” this book engages a broad range of authors often subdivided into ideological, aesthetic, generational, national and identity-based camps, and taps the accessibility of vernacular speech to offer new means of comparative study, cross-reference and discursive collaboration.
