James Dickey | Writer's Workshop

James Dickey
(February 2, 1923 – January 19, 1997)
 
In an interview laced with humor and illustrations from the works of other artists, Dickey examines the elements of poetry, compares novels to movies, and explains why he considers Dylan Thomas the most original poet in the English language. His advice to young writers is simple: Ask yourself if you love writing enough to continue no matter what obstacles you encounter.
