Poetics on the Radio


This is where poetry approaches music. Because you cannot put meaning in words as intellectually comprehensible. It’s just there, and you know it’s there. And it is the rhythm and the beat and the music of the sound that carries it. To me, that is extremely mysterious, and rightly so.  

Between the Covers podcast host David Naimon talks to sci-fi legend Ursula K. Le Guin about her latest book of poetry, Late in the Day. Naimon and Le Guin explore the nexus between nature and poetry, the fellowship between humanity and all beings, our relationship to time and non-living objects, storytelling and form in poetry, and so much more. Have a listen!
