A Modern War Bride through Poetry


    Hour 2

    Philadelphia poet ELYSE FENTON comes in to discuss her writing that received the prestigious 2010 University of Wales’ Dylan Thomas Prize. Much of the winning debut poetry collection, Clamor, are meditations of what Fenton thought her new husband was going through as an Army medic in Iraq. The $46,000 Dylan Thomas Prize is open to writers of the English language under the age of 30.
