An Interview with Eleanor Ross Taylor

On March 14, 2002, Susan Settlemyre Williams of Blackbird met with poet Eleanor Ross Taylor in Ms. Taylor's home in Charlottesville, Virginia. Their discussion ranged from Taylor's early life as a poet, her marriage to Pulitzer-Prize-winning fiction writer Peter Taylor, her literary friendships with Randall Jarrell, Robert Penn Warren, Allen Tate, and others, to her views on the work of today's poets and her own evolution as a writer.
