About This Show
(Originally broadcast 09/27/13) - Renowned South Carolina artist Jonathan Green's work has inspired a wide range of artists around the world. In Seeking - Poetry and Prose Inspired by the Art of Jonathan Green (USC Press, 2013), co-editors Kwame Dawes and Marjory Wentworth gather some of their responses, in works of poetry, prose, and memoir.
Seeking's evocative power lies in the intimacy of this dialogue, which speaks to the shared sense of landscape and culture that Green stirs in these writers, ranging from close friends and fellow artists from his home state of South Carolina to nationally established authors who regard Green's work as an important cultural institution. Jonathan Green, Kwame Dawes, and Marjory Wentworth talk with Dr. Edgar about these "responses," and the art that provoked them.
