Mary Louise Parker Reads Caroline's Poetry!
THERE’S SOMETHING ABOUT MARY-LOUISE PARKER
“Parker lists Mark Strand (her “favorite poet”) alongside people in the theater world, like Mike Nichols, in her acknowledgments. “Because I mostly read poetry, and I mostly like poetry, I like things succinct like that. The best poems have a glorious lack of resolution, but you still feel like you’ve landed somewhere.” She gets increasingly animated as she talks about some of the poets she enjoys, including Kevin Young, Bob Hicok, Jorie Graham, Yusef Komunyakaa, and Caroline Hagood.”
