I was thrilled to read that Philip Schutlz was the 2008 winner of the Pulitzer Prize for poetry.
Mr. Schultz was a guest on the show in January of this year, prior to the award being announced. We discussed FAILURE, his latest book of poems. I loved the book and I thoroughly enjoyed our converstaion.
Congrarulations to Philip Schultz for his well earned award!
FAILURE is a brilliant new book of poetry by Philip Schultz; his first new collection in fifteen years. Failure is something we don't like to talk about, yet it is something that most of us know a lot about.
There is nothing wrong with failure (hopefully we learn from it). Mr. Schultz's collection is thought provoking and wise. During the interview he reads four poems aloud.
One of my goals when I started this venture was to offer poets a venue where listeners could listen to them read their work. I believe it is the best way to experience a poem.
