S5:E12 Jennifer Franklin hosted by Farnaz Fatemi

Listen to the episode here!

Farnaz talked with Jennifer Franklin, whose third book, If Some God Shakes Your House, has just been published by Four Way Books in March 2023.  We discuss If Some God Shakes Your House, in which Franklin has “reimagined Antigone for our times–where filial devotion and ossified roles of gendered labor become the engine of her defiance.” Franklin’s work is honest and riveting, and full of insight about what it means to be a woman. We discuss persona poems, writing about difficult material, ecopoetry, and more.
