February 24, 2013: Kathleen Fraser Part 3

Sadly, this is the third and last installment of our interview with the fascinating and fabulous Kathleen Fraser. Kathleen talked the various ways she constructs her work. She discussed collaging her journal entries and creating an artist book for Charles Alexander at Chax Press. She read her piece written for Norma Cole, which originally sought to capture the experience of Easter in Italy, but ended up becoming "hi dde violeth i dde violet" (from her recent book moveable TYYPE, Nightboat Press, 2011), a poem generated when she physically cut up her words to create collages on her walls. In the second half of the show, Kathleen talks about her ground-breaking journal HOW(ever) which focused on women poets at a time when they were ignored. We close the show by reading Marianne Moore's poem 'Poetry' which inspired the title of this amazing journal.
