I’m delighted to have my interview with American poet Ruth Danon published in Issue 83 of the wonderful The Cortland Review.
Thank you to Christian Gullette for accepting our interview for publication. Issue 83 has the most fantastic artwork on its cover (German Garden (Weather Report) 2019, oil on canvas by Wayne Koestenbaum), and features a myriad of poetry including Cynthia Atkins and Alison Hicks, as well as work in translation. Read the Editor’s Note here.
In our interview, Ruth and I talk about process, the subconscious, art and poetry – all in relation to her latest collection Word Has It. Ruth was very open and forthcoming in her answers to my questions which were often prompted by my emotional reaction to her powerful work.
In the same issue of The Cortland Review, Clara Burghelea reviews R Word Has It.
Thanks to Ruth for agreeing to the interview – you can connect with Ruth via her website.
