Last week I had the pleasure of sitting down for an hour with Norman Gilliland over at the Wisconsin Public Radio studios to talk about John Donne’s poetry. It was a fun conversation–Norman is a master interviewer–and we covered everything from metaphysical poetry to Badger football (and even discussed how the two are similar). Here’s a link to the show, which you can download to a device or stream online.
Norman was also at our first Holding History event back in July. In the interview, I talked a bit about the 1633 of Donne’s Poems, which is held in Memorial Library’s Special Collections.
