Years upon years ago I wanted to drop everything in my life and go study poetry at the University of Virginia under the tutelage of Rita Dove. Well, that did not happen, but her as an inspiration still exists. I'm so happy to have found this interview with her. Drop in and drop out of the interview as needed. It's 33 minutes long. I like her explanation of writing and writing in drafts around minutes 4:00 to 6:00-something. She's so brilliant, grounded, and lovable at the same time.
