Robin Becker

Poetry

Interviewed by: Angela Elam

Catalog Number: 20040121, 20010228

Poet and feminist Robin Becker talks about the development of her poetry and how her own closeted feelings about her sexuality kept her work from being as revealing--that is, until her fourth collection, All-American Girl, which went on to win the Lambda Literary Award in Lesbian poetry.  She also describes the literary influence of Pulitzer Prize winning poet, Maxine Kumin, who demanded honesty in her work.  You’ll also hear a reading of several poems from her 2000 book, The Horse Fair.

| Subject Matter: Maxine Kumin, Feminism | Interview Year: 2000 | Genre: Poetry | Awards: Lambda Literary Award |
