The poet Christian Wyman spent the first stretch of the pandemic gathering some of humanity’s most brilliant pieces of writing about home. In this conversation with Yale’s Evan Rosa, Wyman suggests that many of us turn to poetry out of a love for specific places and a feeling of separation from those places. We build a home in words, even as we hope to build more belonging in our cities and towns. This is a rich conversation, worthy of multiple listens.
