Speaking with George Oppen: Interviews with the Poet and Mary Oppen, 1968-1987. Ed. Richard Swigg.
Seventeen interviews with the award-winning American poet George Oppen, conducted between 1968 and 1987, are here brought together for the first time. Two are fresh discoveries, while re-audited recordings of other interviews have given a new authoritative accuracy to the text. These conversations provide a unique account of a major American poet’s evolution, through the Depression, war, exile and a return to poetry after two decades of silence.
