Boston Globe Interview: The Art of Parenthood
Here's a recent interview with the Boston Globe on poetry and parenting by Dave Wilson:
When the Globe caught up with poet Oliver de la Paz, he was in his car, waiting in a school pickup line. De la Paz, who teaches at Holy Cross, was a poet long before he became a father, but in his most recent work he grapples with the beauty and difficulty of both roles.
His children feature prominently in de la Paz’s current manuscript in process, from which he’ll read as the headliner of this year’s Lesley University Winter Series. “It’s about parenting and the struggles that I’ve encountered,” he said. “But also mostly about how remarkable my kids are.”
