Poet Jeanne Marie Beaumont talks about how her work pays tribute to some of her poetic foremothers and her passion for collecting. Her three collections of poetry include Curious Conduct, Placebo Effects, and Burning of the Three Fires, all assemblages of everyday objects, fairy tale imagery, and nods to writers who've influenced her, including Sylvia Plath and Emily Dickinson. Beaumont discusses her love of integrating different art forms and also talks about how poets collect sounds, words and images to create a dreamlike, imaginary world that connects us with time and history.
