WORDS ON A WIRE: Arthur Sze


Daniel & Ben talk with Chinese-American poet, Arthur Sze, author of "The Redshifting Web," "The Ginkgo Light," and other books (aired Sept. 30, 2012). Sze talks about arrival to Santa Fe, New Mexico, 40 years ago and how it continues to influence his work. He also discusses why the label of “Asian-American poet” hinders or helps his work. Sze also talks about the intentional relaxed-pace rhythm of his poetry, and how his work has changed over the years. Arthur Sze reads this week’s Poem of the Week – “Crisscross” from the collection “The Ginkgo Light.”
