Literary Nonfiction. Poetry. SIXTY MORNING TALKS: SERIAL INTERVIEWS WITH CONTEMPORARY AUTHORS provides sixty transcribed interviews with poets who released 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.
