*Mark Weiss: José Martí: "José Julián Martí y Pérez (1853-1895) may not
be unique as a political poet-martyr (one thinks of Byron and Lorca),
but he must have been one of the most politically involved. The very
model of the committed artist, he was 42 when he died in one of the first
engagements of the second Cuban War of Independence, of which he had
been chief propagandist and one of the principal planners. He had spent
his entire adult life in exile, chiefly in Mexico City and New York."

*Pieces on "Pieces of Air in the Epic", by Brenda Hillman: Barbara
Claire Freeman, Editor.

"The generic convention of the book review is monologic; however
nuanced and subtle, the constraints of the form typically allow the
inclusion of only one perspective. This collection of short texts on
the poems in Brenda Hillman's Pieces of Air in the Epic intends first,
to present a kind of collective 'book review,' that is, a form of writing
about poems that demands a plurality of individual voices; and second, to
provide a forum in which poets respond to and explore a particular poem."

*Kathleen Fraser in conversation with Sarah Rosenthal, 2007:
"SR: Silence has been a central trope in your writing since early on.
It carries a range of meanings, from erasure to grief and loss to the
spaciousness of an open field. Perhaps we could trace some of the ways in
which silence has come up in your work over time."
