Erica Hunt for the New Social Environment


In this installment of the New Social Environment series for the Brooklyn Rail recorded in April, Charles Bernstein speaks with Erica Hunt about unpacking language and how writers have reimagined ways to communicate amongst each other during the pandemic. Hunt talks about her new poetry collection, Jump the Clock (Nightboat Books, 2020), in Ten Questions.

On December 17, 1977, Charles Bernstein read poems from Senses of Responsibility and Shade on Public Access Poetry, a cable television series that aired in 1977 and 1978. While the quality isn't great in places (it was the seventies, after all), this and dozens of other clips offer a unique glimpse of poets such as Bernstein, Alice Notley, Ted Berrigan, Ron Padgett, and Bob Holman thirty-five years ago.
