Politics and Creation in the space between languages

I was very honored when French poet and critic Emmanuèle Jawad asked me whether I would like to be part of a cycle of 10 interviews on the theme of creation and politics. These interviews of women poets began to appear mid-summer and are scheduled to conclude this December. Last week, my interview appeared in which I dicuss themes of multilingual writing as applied to my work but also my reading habits and perhaps even formal influences, issues of form and translation to creation and to political issues in the writing, and in the end I touched on the topics which I think have been far more thoroughly and richly explored by authors I read and admire. Here is a link to that interview, in French:

And the link to the overall page for the Création et Politique series of 10 interviews, where you can read Emmanuèle's reasoning for doing these interviews.
