Paul Muldoon Interviews 2022 Griffin Poetry Prize International Finalist Ed Roberson

“I’m amazed at how much I like the architecture of poems…The shapes of poems actually say things and carry weight and meaning.’” —Ed Roberson

In this interview with Griffin Trustee Paul Muldoon, 2022 Griffin Poetry Prize international finalist Ed Roberson reflects on what he has learned over decades of writing, experimenting with the duration and form of poems, and how the title of his shortlisted collection was born. The interview includes a reading of “The Listening” and “Sense” from Roberson’s shortlisted collection, Asked What Has Changed (Wesleyan University Press).
