With brazen fist;

E- Interview

Sam Hamill

So I try to make my art from humble origins and humble daily practice, nevertheless believing completely that the path of poetry is one of the ten thousand paths to the Buddha, and that the practice of poetry itself is entirely sufficient in and of itself. I am a tireless student of the Way of Poetry. I've always loved Gary Snyder's remark, 'as a poet, I hold the most archaic values on earth.' An e-interview with Sam Hamill.

The Transverse Review of Books began as nostalgia. I missed the sense of literary community and the heated oral exchanges that characterized Box 749 Magazine during the seventies-- the heyday of the little-magazine movement. Far into the night we debated the aesthetics of submitted poems and stories. More than thirty years later, I still wish that we had published a poem by John Burnett Payne that gave to tugboats (which are traditionally named for their owners' wives, mothers, and sisters) the names of women poets: 'The Amy Lowell.' 'The Elinor Wylie.' 'The Emily Dickinson.' But that was a battle I lost.

By Patricia Eakins.

Observations

A look at the West Chester Writer's Conference where The focus. . .is exploring poetry through form and narrative. This encouragement to pay attention to structure becomes evident with the first open reading, where many of the poets read verse that plays with language and rhyme. By Joyce Wilson.
