Mar 04, 06:21 AM
Is there a special way poets have of explaining love? What about history? Or the Bible? In this episode, the poet Antoinette Brim discusses the challenges she had in taking on the topic of women in Genesis in her most recent book, These Women You Gave Me. Hear about this and other topics of her work, like how she copes with ageing and how to define the meaning of love. 

Rewrite Exercise: Look at the world around you. Check out the news, mythology, science, etc. Is there an image or event that could serve as a metaphor for what you are going through now? Write about the image or event. Write about yourself and what you are going through. Go back and forth.
