DescriptionAn interview with Richard Outram conducted by Michael Enright, originally broadcast on the CBC radio program "Sunday Edition" (Hour 3) on 7 April 2002. The interview flows through various topics, from Outram's early years working for the CBC to influences such as Northrop Frye and the natural world, and includes Outram's reading of four of his poems. Several key points that come through in the interview include: the importance of perfecting one's language; that extensive reading has been critical to the creation of his poetry; and that both the reading and teaching of poetry in school must not be lost. The interview concludes with Outram's hope that the poet may find a degree of "forming influence" for the better in the world.
