Fourteen renowned contemporary American poets several of whom were Poets Laureate of the United States, Pulitzer Prize and other prestigious poetry award recipients are presented here in interviews: Jerry Ball, Rita Dove, Lawrence Ferlinghetti Nikki Giovanni, Joy Harjo, Christopher Herold, Juan Felipe Herrera, Jane Hirshfield, Roald Hoffmann, Ted Kooser, Maxine Kumin, Li-Young Lee, William Marr, Naomi Shihab Nye These poets vary in their backgrounds and in the ethnic groups they come from; they speak a rich mosaic of American experiences in the twenty first century. These conversations provide insightful wisdom on a wide range of topics including haiku, poetry with music and dance, the Beat Movement, minority experiences, poetry slam, the use of metaphors, challenges in translating poetry, inspiring poets or mentors, the use of memory in poetry and various other issues related to the writing process. Poets About Poetry is an exceptional volume for both poets and poetry readers alike and offers unique perspectives on the art and craft of poetry
