Marvin Bell Q&A

The newest issue of Third Coast includes an excerpt from a November 2007 Q&A session Marvin Bell gave to students and faculty of Western Michigan University as part of the Gwen Frostic reading series. The editors note that Bell began the session with: “Since this is being recorded I’d like to say my name is James Dickey!” He goes on to discuss his writing habits, the challenges of writing political poetry, the poem “When Lilacs Last in the Dooryard Bloom’d,” and the influence of his being a musician in his poetry.
