June 9, 2012 Paul Vangelisti part 2

On June 9th we aired part two of our interview with writer and translator Paul Vangelisti, who was kind enough to join us during his visit to San Francisco last month. He discusses being a writer in Los Angeles and what he calls 'cynicism' in language and how language has been corrupted by advertising and media. Again, we were impressed with his diverse knowledge of poets and poetic history. He recounts some of his experience in being a translator. In studio, we were spurred to talk about the possible responsibility of the reader to investigate the references and content in a given creative piece. Part three of this wonderful interview will be aired June 16th!
