February 25, 2012 Aaron Shurin, Part 3

On Saturday February 25th, we played part 3 of our interview with Aaron Shurin. During this segment we moved into talking about his book of personal essays King of Shadows. Aaron talked about what was made possible through writing in prose rather than poetry. We talked more in depth about the letters and conflict between Denise Levertov and Robert Duncan and discussed the balance between moral and poetic 'imperitives' in poetry. He also talked about his older work Unbound, which tackled the HIV epidemic in both the 'factual' and the 'creative.' And again, we got to hear his wonderful work. Click here to listen
