Have you ever wished you could visit poets in their homes and hear them discuss their writing processes, their outlook on the world, and how their experiences shape their art? Then this video series from The Cortland Review, a long-running literary publication, may be for you. Poets In Person allows viewers to step into the homes and lives of nine poets (as of this write up) whose work has been featured in The Cortland Review. The first video, published in January 2011 features former US Poet Laureate Philip Levine. Other poets profiled in the series include Jane Hirshfield, Claudia Emerson, and more. The most recent installment, released in April 2018, visits Gregory Pardlo at his home in Brooklyn, New York, where Pardlo discusses his beliefs on genre and traces his poetic influences back to his interest in rap music as a teenager. Videos range from about three to six minutes in length and can be viewed on The Cortland Review's YouTube page as well as on their main website under the Video tab.
