Poet Richard Howard
‘Success’ and a Faun’s Afternoon. Richard Howard, Pulitzer Prize-winning poet and translator, amuses us while musing on French fauns, ghosts of all-but-forgotten New York cruising spots, and the cultural figures he’s memorialized or channeled in verse – including painter Alice Neel, dancer Isadora Duncan and Madame Charles de Gaulle. Now in his eighties, this “living legend” shares his poems, tells how translating can be erotic and reflects on gay life before many of us were born.
Out in the Bay host Eric Jansen conducted this interview after Mr. Howard's spring 2012 reading at the Center for the Art of Translation's "Lit & Lunch" series in San Francisco, with the Center's literary programs manager, C.J. Evans. (First broadcast April 19, 2012)
