This is a fascinating collection of interviews with the Pulitzer Prize winner and United States Poet Laureate. United States Poet Laureate Natasha Trethewey describes her mode as elegiac. Although the loss of her murdered mother informs each work, Trethewey's range of forms and subjects is far reaching. In compact sonnets, elegant villanelles, ballad stanzas, and free verse, she creates monuments to mixed-race children of colonial Mexico, African American soldiers from the Civil War, a beautiful prostitute in 1910 New Orleans, and domestic workers from the twentieth-century North and South. The interviews featured in this volume provide intriguing artistic and biographical insights into her work. The Pulitzer Prize-winning poet cites diverse influences, from Anne Frank to Seamus Heaney. She emotionally acknowledges Rita Dove's large impact, and she boldly positions herself in the southern literary tradition of Faulkner and Robert Penn Warren. Commenting on "Pastoral," "South," and other poems, Trethewey guides readers to deeper perception and empathy.
