SER Online, Interview: Annie Finch
Interviewed by Jennifer Schomburg Kanke
“My religion is ecstatically satisfying to me. It has saved my life and helped me to find my bearings as a woman and a poet in this wounded and wounding culture.”
Annie Finch’s first collection of poetry, The Encyclopedia of Scotland, was published by Caribou Press in 1982. Since that time she has published five other collections, including 2010’s Among the Goddesses: An Epic Libretto in Seven Dreams, which won the Sarasvati Award for Poetry from the Association for the Study of Women and Mythology. Finch has played a central role in expanding the understanding of modern formal poetry as more than just a conservative old-boys club and has published anthologies such as A Formal Feeling Comes: Poems in Form by Contemporary Women and An Exaltation of Forms: Contemporary Poets Celebrate the Diversity of Their Art as well as books of poetics such as The Ghost of Meter: Culture and Prosody in American Free Verse and The Body of Poetry: Essays on Women, Form, and the Poetic Self.
