WORDS ON A WIRE: Edward Hirsch

  Daniel talks with poet & critic, Edward Hirsch, about his latest book, A Poet's Glossary, which is not so much a book of definitions as it is an exploration of the history of the terms and how those terms interrelate to each other.  Hirsch explains why it took 15 years to compile the information for this book, and why he believes it can still be more expansive (it's already over 700 pages long).  We'll learn about the terms "Duende," "Flarf," and "Spam Poetry."  

This week's Poem of the Week is read by our guest, Edward Hirsch.  He reads "To Poetry."

For this week's Poetic License, Fresno poet Marisol Baca returns to share a couple of poems that reflect upon the world she lived in as a childhood dreamer.  We'll hear "Horno" and "The Discovery."
