Poets at Work, Interviews from The Paris Review

Poets at Work, Interviews from The Paris Review

"People interested in learning about the poets here will find literary history, literary insight, gossip, humor, perspective, universal and particular knowledge. People who already know the poets, and know the way their poems and lives intersect, will experience, along with the pleasure of revisiting their knowledge, a continuous musical delight."—Vijay Seshadri, from the preface.

The Paris Review is proud to announce the publication of Poets at Work—our latest anthology of interviews. Selected and introduced by poetry editor Vijay Seshadri, the thirteen conversations in Poets at Work have been drawn from the over one hundred Art of Poetry interviews and span the seven-decade history of The Paris Review.
