Poetry in Person in National Poetry Month

During National Poetry Month every April, Knopf send out a Poet-a-Day email to thousands of free subscribers.  Today, April 5, 2010, the featured item comes from my Poetry in Person: 25 Years of Conversation with America's Poets, with special highlights from a 1982 conversation with Nobel Prize winning poet, Derek Walcott.  Walcott speaks with excitement about the making of his poem "XLVIII," from Midsummer, and about Carribean mythmaking.  At the end of the post is an audio clip of Walcott about mythmaking.


Later in the month Knopf with add other audio clips from among the other poets.  If you want to add your name to their subscriber list for a poem-a-day in the month of April, follow:
