My Singing Teachers; and John Brown's Body
|Susan Hiller's "Monument" (1980-81) *|
Very interesting to talk with Andrew King at Kenyon Review about THE PUBLIC GARDENS, poetry, history, time, suffering, Robert Moses, pillars of roses, Robert Lowell, John Brown's body, the Old Testament, my grandmothers, my daughter, and the best thing Mark Twain never said.
Gertrude Jekyll's gardens
"Years ago I read about a pillar of roses in an English garden,
and so I own it, I have the deed by heart."
