Interview with Planet Poet

LISTEN to the May 11th, 2021 WIOX Radio conversation with the original and exuberant poet Roberta Gould on her latest collection Woven Lightning (Spuyten Duyvil, 2019) and other works.

“The tension between the lyrical and the practical, the soaring and the quotidian give her poetry its arresting and archetypical energy. A procession of gongs and silences, powerful and affecting. A poet to the bone. – Stanley Nelson, winner of the Thomas Wolfe Poetry Award.

“Roberta Gould is a poet who brings all her senses to her work …the focus is beautifully and lovingly on the familiar…poems that are full of spirit and inventiveness.”

–Donald Lev
