The Craft of Obsession

National Book Award-winning poet Terrance Hayes will look at a poem from each of the late poet Lynda Hull's three books: Ghost Money (1986), Star Ledger (1991), and The Only World (1995). The poems demonstrate the ways a poet can develop themes and strategies from one book to the next. Hull's poems about music and musicians, in particular, show how a poet can both accept and challenge his or her obsessions.

Terrance Hayes is the author of How to Be DrawnLighthead, which won the 2010 National Book Award for poetry; Muscular Music, which won the Kate Tufts Discovery Award; Hip Logic, winner of the 2001 National Poetry Series; and Wind in a Box. He is a professor of English at the University of Pittsburgh, in Pennsylvania.
