Interview with Pulitzer Prize Winning Poet, Robert Hass

This week, the Pulitzer Prize for poetry went to Robert Hass, a UC Berkeley professor and former U.S. poet laureate. To mark the occasion, we’re posting here Sierra Club Radio’s interview with Hass. The interview, recorded this past Saturday (mp3iTunesweb site), delves into Hass’ “thoughts on the intersection between language and our environment, how he decided to use his position as Poet Laureate for advocacy, and has him reading selections from his new book of poetry Time and Materials — winner of the 2008 Pulitzer Prize. He also gives some insights into the collection and stories behind some of the poems.”
