Interview with Poet Cleopatra Mathis

Listen to our interview with Cleopatra Mathis here. She was the last in our series, Conversations with Vermont Poets, sponsored in part by the Vermont Humanities Council. Cleopatra discusses writers and poetry topics such as Slyvia Plath, Flannery O’Connor, the importance of holding tension in writing poetry, the relationship between syntax, line break, vocabulary, and the music of a line in a poem, lyric vs. narrative poetry, and the observation of things outside the self that then become of the self. CD’s and podcasts of all 8 Conversations with Vermont Poets available soon!
