Poetry

Interviewed by: Angela Elam

Catalog Number: 20170512, 20161028

Poet and visual artist Bianca Stone talks about her various projects, from her first full length book Someone Else's Wedding Vows to her 2016 illustrated collection, Poetry Comics from the Book of Hours, and reveals how she uses her visual art to create a new interpretation of the work rather than simply illustrate the narrative of the poem. Stone also discusses her collaboration with poet Anne Carson to release an illustrated translation of Sophocles' Antigonick, as well as the inspiration she draws from past poets, including her grandmother, the late Ruth Stone, and the foundation she chairs to preserve her work and ensure a writing space for single mothers.
