Peter O'Leary in conversation with Joshua Marie Wilkinson




Peter O'Leary discusses, among other things, religious poetry in the most recent issue of Evening Will Come.

"If we think of language as a star, religious poetry is the source of the light it emits – the radiant core. But religious poetry is also this energetic periphery to language: it’s in that dynamic intermediate region, between what is spoken and what’s unspoken, the place where liquid and solid meet, or vocalization and thought."
