S4:E28 Gregory Orr Hosted by Dion O’Reilly

Listen HERE

Gregory Orr reads from his new book Last Love Poem I will Ever Write. Dion O’Reilly and Gregory Orr discuss the “threshold,” the boundary between the tolerable and intolerable and how poetry crafts disorder, revealing tools to survive or, even better, to discover the Beloved. We discuss the lyric poem, the villanelle, and how moments of bliss and pain turn us into poets and lovers of poetry, bringing deeper meaning to our lives. Greg has a new book, Selected Books of the Beloved, that came out in August 2022.
