Crossing Boundaries (Conversation)

Many poems and poets cross linguistic, geographic and cultural boundaries. For some of our most memorable, influential and powerful poems to be written, boundaries created by personal or government-imposed censorship, family, religious or cultural taboos, or the dictates of one fashionable aesthetic school or another had to be crossed. Richard Blanco, Ladan Osman and Ruth Irupé Sanabria discuss how some poems come out of the effort to break down boundaries or the need to cross them. Moderated by Francisco Aragón.
