CD 04 – Daniel Rattelle On Poetry, Place, and Berry & Merton

Poet Dan Rattelle joins the podcast to discuss his new collection Commonwealth from Little Gidding Press. We discuss the idea of place and how Scotland and New England have influenced his poetry. Plus, Dan and I explore a meeting between Wendell Berry and Thomas Merton, and the article he wrote about it for The Front Porch Republic.
