Interesting "question and answer" discussion with former Poet Laureate, Robert Pinsky.
I especially like the part where he mentions C. Dale Young and Alicia Stallings. I don't know why, but I do. Maybe it's because I know Alicia through Eratosphere, West Chester and Formalista, and because I read C. Dale's blog often enough to feel downright chummy with him in a strictly-internet-sort-of-way.
Anyhow, it's a good read and you'd do well to check it out.
