EP27: The Poet and The Body

Hosts Stacey Waite and Scott Winter talked to renowned poet Li-Young Lee about the ways that poetry can become a comprehensive embodiment of the soul, and about the ways it can not. Li-Young Lee uses his current work, an unfinished long poem called "The Undressing", as an example of the various ways we treat the body, as opposed to what the body is or can be. In this week's episode, you'll get to hear a peak poet at the height of his power, his explorations of the process, as well as excerpts from that work.
