Not only is Anna Crowe’s poetry intriguing, informed and captivatingly beautiful, but she’s also a fascinating and candid interview. If you are a fan of Anna’s — you’ll already want to hear this. However, if you just want to hear some new and wonderful poems – this is the podcast for your lucky ears.
Ryan chats with translator and poet Anna Crowe about her award winning pamphlet ‘Figure in Landscape’. Anna reads from the collection, discusses the need for distance in writing about place, the influence of art in poetry (especially Catalan artist Andreu Maimó) and the process of self-translation.
