Poetry

Interviewed by: Angela Elam

Catalog Number: 20120824, 20111118

Wayne Miller calls himself an “obsessive reviser” who tries editors’ patience; ironic given that he edits Pleiades: A Journal of New Writing at the University of Central Missouri, where he also directs the Creative Writing program. Miller reads from his 2011 collection, The City, Our City, and talks about how history and war shape culture and language. He also discusses the art of translation and what it can teach young poets, and shares award-winning poems from his 2006 book, Only the Senses Sleep, and his 2009 collection, The Book of Props.

| Subject Matter: History, War, Culture, Translation, Creative Writing | Interview Year: 2011 | Genre: Poetry |
