Thinking Aloud
Poet Idris Anderson
Idris Anderson is the 2008 recipient of the May Swenson Poetry Award, a significant national award for poetry in the English language. Her publisher describes her poetic voice as having little interest in ideology, but great concern for lived experience in all its richness. Eminent literary critic Harold Bloom says Anderson's "grave, measured poetic voice" won him over instantly. Anderson visited BYU last week and stopped by to talk to us on Thinking Aloud.—Original airdate: 10/27/2008
