amaican-born poet Claudia Rankine’s work “goes directly to the objective of literary writing–to write a book that is deeply interesting despite the expectations that received forms give us,” according to interviewer and New Letters editor Robert Stewart. The two discuss her early collection Plot and her multi-genre book Don’t Let Me Be Lonely that combines prose and poetry with incongruous illustrations.
