Poetry off the Shelf Podcast: The Language of Violence


Producer Curtis Fox explores the diverse world of contemporary American poetry with readings by poets, interviews with critics, and short poetry documentaries. Nothing is off limits, and nobody is taken too seriously.

In this episode, Danez Smith and Brian Russell examine how we label acts of violence, and the power of poetry to connect the political with the deeply personal.
