S4: E38 Ellen Bass and Francesca Bell and Dion O’Reilly Talk about Anne Sexton

Listen here!

Ellen Bass talks about her experience having Anne Sexton as a teacher in the ’70s at Boston University. Then, Francesca Bell zooms in and we read and discuss a few of Sexton’s poems. Dion mentions Sexton’s fabulous biography by Diane Middlebrook. If you are interested in reading Sexton’s poems, a good place to start is collected poems or her selected poems.
