i-Outlaw 2.6 featuring Annie Finch

You can now listen to i-Outlaw 2.6, the audio poetry show I host, produced by Josh Hinck. Lots of stuff interfered with our rapid release of this version, including the wonderful arrival of my parents for a stretch. Anyway, everything should be up and running now. Happy Independence Day!

Annie Finch LimelightHer mother was a poet and doll-artist, her father a scholar of philosophy and religion. A practicing Wiccan, Finch's poetry is inspired largely by her relations with the natural world, especially the landscapes of Maine. The forms of Finch's poems are almost always complex and musical; their themes draw upon earth-centered spirituality, myth, sex, and childbirth. Uniting all of her work is a conception of poetry as essentially incantatory, performative, speaking to the body as much as to the mind.
- from the Annie Finch and Poets.org websites.
The role of the poet, as of every citizen, is to be first a fully engaged citizen, either of a family or a community or a subculture or a nation or the planet or of any other group that feels like the right fit.
- from an interview on Here Comes Everybody, 2005.
