Conversations with the american avant-garde

I’m reading a fascinating book that offers interviews with John Ashbery, Rae Armantrout, Robert Creeley, Fanny Howe, Lisa Jarnot, Kenneth Koch, Ann Lauterbach, Bernadette Mayer, Harryette Mullen, Michael Palmer, Lewis Warsh, and Marjorie Welish.  Daniel Kane conducted these interviews over 1998-2002. Each entry includes a bio sketch of the poet, one or two representative poems, and an interview. The 185-page book What Is Poetry is published by the Teachers & Writers Collaborative, which promotes literary arts education by supporting writers and teachers in developing and implementing strategies to enhance students’ interest in and love of literature and writing. Kane’s poetry is published in TriQuarterly, Exquisite Corpse, The Hat, Fence, and other journals.
