The Catholic Tradition Podcast: 133 – Assume Like a Poet


Might 25, 2022

In a wide-ranging and erudite interview, poet and translator
Ryan Wilson joins the podcast to debate how the poet makes use of
the classical advantage of xenia or hospitality, what poets
can be taught from the work of translation, the “romantic flip” (inside
imaginative and prescient) and the “classical flip” (communication/craft) in poetry,
the nice Latin poet Horace, and extra. Ryan performs, in his
dynamic fashion, basic poems by Horace and others, in addition to his
personal poems.

Ryan Wilson is an adjunct professor of English on the Catholic
College of America, editor of the journal Literary
Issues
, and a visiting professor of poetry within the MFA program
on the College of St. Thomas in Houston. He’s the creator of
three books: The Stranger World, a set of
unique poems; The best way to Assume Like a Poet;
and Proteus Sure: Chosen Translations, 2008-2020.
Forthcoming are his anthology of up to date Catholic poetry from
Paraclete Press (spring 2023), and one other guide of unique poems,
The Ghostlight.
