Conversations with Stanley Kunitz - Literary Conversations Series (Paperback)Kent P. Ljungquist (editor)
- We can order this
Kunitz emerged from a mid-sized industrial town in central Massachusetts, surviving family tragedy and a sense of personal isolation and loneliness, to become an eloquent spokesman for poetry and for the power of the human imagination. Kunitz has commented, ""If we want to know what it felt like to be alive at any given moment in the long odyssey of the race, it is to poetry we must turn."" His own odyssey from ""metaphysical loneliness"" to a sense of community with fellow writers and artists - by building institutions like Poets House and the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, Massachusetts - is ever present in these interviews.
