John Tranter in Philadelphia
John Tranter recently visited the Kelly Writers House in Philadelphia. He participated in the recording of an episode of PoemTalk (about a poem by Ray DiPalma — to be released later), and then took time to record a conversation with Al Filreis about the founding of Jacket and various related topics. This recording is episode #31 in the PennSound podcast series. During the discussion Filreis asked Tranter to read a few recent poems; three poems can be heard in the whole recording, but have also been segmented, as follows:
“At the Tomb of Napoleon”
“Goats and Monkeys”
The podcast was engineered and edited by Steve McLaughlin. For an earlier interview with Tranter, conducted by John Kinsella, go here.
