“I’ve been in mourning about the experience of writing The Tradition. It really wore me out and I loved every second of it,” says Jericho Brown about writing his Pulitzer Prize–winning collection, The Tradition (Copper Canyon Press, 2019), and how he works through self-doubt in this installment of Line / Break hosted by Laura Buccieri, press director of publicity for Copper Canyon Press.

Poets in Space: Jericho Brown

Caption: 

“We thought / Fingers in dirt meant it was our dirt, learning / Names in heat, in elements classical / Philosophers said could change us.” In this Paris Review video, Jericho Brown reads two poems from his most recent collection, The Tradition (Copper Canyon Press, 2019), for which he received the 2020 Pulitzer Prize in Poetry. Filmed in 2019 in the woods of Decatur, Georgia, “Poets in Space” was directed and produced by Daniel Grossman and Sean Webley in collaboration with the poet Malachi Black.
