Jonathan Holden

Poetry

Interviewed by: Angela Elam

Catalog Number: 20070601, 20061027

The first poet laureate of Kansas, Jonathan Holden originally hails from New Jersey, though he can honestly sing praises of his adopted home state, where he's been a long-time professor of poetry at Kansas State University in the Flint Hills. He talks about his varied loves—poetry, mathematics and baseball—and reads works about them from his collection, Knowing: New and Selected Poems.
