Brenda Shaughnessy: Heartbreak, Joy, and Poetry

  • Aired: 11/30/2014

  • Rating: NR
Poet Brenda Shaughnessy published "Our Andromeda" in 2012. In a review, the NY Times wrote, "Love is the fierce engine of this beautiful and necessary book of poems." Shaughnessy describes what motivates her to write, and gives her "5 Basic Rules" for aspiring poets. We see her read at the 2014 Dodge Poetry Festival, and visit her in class at Rutgers-Newark, where she teaches in the MFA program.
