The Poetry of Memory, Imagination and the South

The latest installment of "Poets In Place," produced by the online journal SouthernSpaces.org, features Emory creative writing professor and 2007 Pulitzer Prize winner Natasha Trethewey in one of the most in depth discussions ever about her work.

Trethewey, with interviewer and fellow poet Jake Adam York, engages in a wide-ranging examination of her work, including the influence of memories of place and landscapes, growing up in the South and "psychological geographies." York, an award-winning writer, is a native of Alabama and an English professor at the University of Colorado.
