Episode 5: Max L. Chapnick and Pip Adam talk about Autobiography of Red by Anne Carson

Max and I had a great chat about Anne Carson’s verse narrative Autobiography of Red. I really enjoyed talking with Max about verse narrative as a form.

 

Max Chapnick

A few hours ago Max sent me an email with this extra bit of insight:

‘I just had a thought which was that the form of the verse narrative mirrors the content — the characters in verse narratives are often outcasts of society, playing with the edges of art/being – as Geryon does with his wings and photographing — and this is the same as how the form is viewed in the literary communities of poetry and fiction — pushing at boundaries.’

Max appears in Rejectamenta which you can read here

He also editing Turbine with Ben Egerton, their issue will appear here but in the meantime there are some great back issues to read.
