TriQuarterly Online, interview with Reginal Gibbons:
“In January, when I received advance proofs of Liz Gray’s long poem Salient, I was utterly taken by the uniqueness of the work. It offers the reader a kind of montage, not only as the reader moves through it, piece by piece, poem by poem, but also in how it juxtaposes two wholly different cultural realms and histories: the horrific British military offensives in Flanders fields in 1917, and medieval Tibetan tantric texts on protective magic. I wanted to know how Gray had found her way to writing this book, and wanted to understand the energies of such a seemingly improbable fusion. I was curious also about how the book evolved over time into its final and ingenious literary form.”
Conversation between Elizabeth T. Gray Jr. and Reginald Gibbons, poet, critic, and translator (Ancient Greek, Spanish, French, Italian, Russian) on the faculty at Northwestern. The interview in full, accompanied by two poems from the book, is online at The TriQuarterly Review.
