VENICE @ CROSS-CULTURAL POETICS
Last month I had the pleasure and honor of speaking at length with Leonard Schwartz, poet, professor at Evergreen College, and host of the pathbreaking radio program Cross-Cultural Poetics, about Killing the Moonlight: Modernism in Venice. PennSound, the online archive hosted by the University of Pennsylvania, now has these radio programs posted, ready to be downloaded or streamed at the following links:
Jennifer Scappettone discusses her book Killing the Moonlight: Modernism in Venice, taking us right up to Marinetti, from whom she draws her title (31:49):
Jennifer Scappettone returns to discuss her book Killing the Moonlight: Modernism in Venice, picking up with Pound and taking us right up to Venice as contemporary ecological imperative (30:23):
Many thanks to Leonard for the great conversation!
