Join The New Yorker's Hilton Als as he continues his residency exploring the ways poets and poetry reflect contemporary American life. Poet Saskia Hamilton discusses her upcoming book, The Dolphin Letters, featuring the correspondence between one of the most famous couples of 20th-century literature: Elizabeth Hardwick and Robert Lowell. It focuses on the last seven years of Lowell's life, a time of personal crisis – and creative innovation, for both writers. Acclaimed actress Kathleen Chalfant joins us to read excerpts.
