On The Importance of Whitman,
Responsibilities of Poets, Cultural & Ethical Relativism, And Living As A Poet in Las Vegas:
It is a huge failure of the imagination and of the human spirit to make war, with the rationale that certain people have to lose for a greater good. Maybe that's true. Maybe certain people have to suffer for some greater good. Maybe that's true, I'd like to think that maybe not. Maybe people have to sacrifice for some greater good, but the idea that you have to punish the innocent for some kind of greater good, I think that is a failure of the human imagination and a failure of the human spirit to say that that must happen. . .
An interview with Aliki Barnstone .
By Abayomi Animashaun.
And featuring the poems of Eva Victoria Perrera, an imaginary poet created by Aliki Barnstone.
