Recalling Bishop

The Poetry Foundation has a revealing and charming podcast about Elizabeth Bishop, called "Oral History Initiative: On Elizabeth Bishop." In the podcast, friends and students of Bishop recall her youthful escapades, her life and her writing, her teaching, her frustrations, and her opinions and perceptions. This roundtable discussion includes Rosanna Warren (whose mother was Bishop's roommate at Vassar), Frank Bidart, and Gail Mazur, among others.

You can also enjoy this podcast through iTunes in the Poetry Foundation's Poetry Lecture series.
