A poet who admits that "90% of his time" is taken up by his day-job, oncologist C. Dale Young talks with New Letters editor, Robert Stewart, about the tradition of the physician-poet.  Also the poetry editor of the New England Review, Young discusses how the act of writing a poem is a political act, and what separates it from propaganda.  He reads from his 2007 collection, The Second Person, and his 2011 book, Torn.
