        Lake Echo, Dear, by C. D. Wright

        This video segment from Poetry Everywhere features the poet C. D. Wright reads her poem “Lake Echo, Dear” at the Dodge Poetry Festival. Born in the Ozark Mountains of Arkansas in 1949, Wright has developed a style of poetry all her own—both experimental and Southern, implicit in its lyrical utterance and yet grounded in an inherent sense of the unutterable.

        For a biography of the poet C. D. Wright please visit the Poetry Foundation Web site.

        This media asset comes from Poetry Everywhere filmed at the Geraldine R. Dodge Poetry Festival.
