A Conversation with Philip Levine

On September 23, 2004, poet Philip Levine met with students and faculty of the MFA Program in Creative Writing at Virginia Commonwealth University to talk about his long-time relationship with poet Larry Levis and, more generally, about his own life as a poet.  Levine had come to Richmond to give a reading at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts as part of Poetic Principles, a series sponsored by the Virginia Museum and New Virginia Review, Inc., that brings to the Richmond area the best poets, writers, critics, and translators at work today.
