U.S. Poet Laureate in 2007-08, Charles Simic is known for his surreal, humorous poetry. Born in Serbia in 1938, Simic immigrated to the United States when he was 16. He talks with New Letters editor Robert Stewart about his more recent work, and the strange experience of gaining national attention as the poet laureate. He reads from his 2008 collection, The Monster Loves His Labyrinth, and other books.
