Planet Poet-Words in Space – NEW PODCAST! LISTEN to my 20016 WIOX Radio conversation with renowned, award-winning poet, Arthur Vogelsang. Vogelsang is the author of seven books of poetry, including Twentieth Century Women and Cities and Towns, which received the Juniper Prize. His work has been included in numerous anthologies such as The Best American Poetry, The Pushchart Prize, The New Breadloaf Anthology of Contemporary Poetry, and American Hybrid. Arthur was coeditor of the Norton anthology The Body Electric: America’s Best Poetry from The American Poetry Review. He is the recipient of a California Arts Council fellowship and three National Endowment for the Arts fellowships in poetry. Arthur’s newest book, Orbit was published by University of Pittsburgh Press.
"Part vaudevillian, part shaman, Arthur Vogelsang celebrates the tenacious hopes of the hopeless and repeats aloud the snarling prayers of the lost. Voice-driven and maximal, each its own tonal high-wire act, Arthur Vogelsang's poems sear the imagination while either touching or ripping out the reader's heart." - David St. John
