Slice the Air With Knives: poetry and 1997 interview, Jessica Hagedorn

10 Jan

A must-watch video. Still so fresh. From the interview (at :27 or so):

I think the landscape of north American literature is changing, and I think the wave of the future are these writers and artists of color. Biracial, multiracial, whatever. Because America itself is becoming more and more this mixed bag. I mean, it was dominated at one time by this one particular point of view. And no longer. It is still very slow, to me. And I think it is very threatening to a lot of keepers of the flame.

You open the door. But that doesn’t mean you have to throw out what’s already there. You just have to add to it.
