Heather Lang Interviews H. L. Hix at The Volta Blog
Fairleigh Dickinson University MFA alum Heather Lang interviews MFA faculty member H. L. Hix on his new collection of interviews, Uncoverage: Asking After Recent Poetry (Essay Press).
You open your conversation with Patricia Smith on her book, Blood Dazzler, with an observation: “The metaphoric correlation between woman and weather is introduced in the first poem (‘every woman begins as weather’) and revisited regularly throughout the book.” Can you talk a bit about some of the themes that reoccur throughout the eighty interviews conducted within Uncoverage: Asking After Recent Poetry? Which reoccurrences did you anticipate, and which were less expected?
