Candice Wuehle : part four

What poets changed the way you thought about writing?

Every poet I read changes the way I think about writing a little bit. But the most directly influential would be Lisa Robertson for her unapologetic intelligence, Hannah Weiner for her radical expansion of what a poem is, Carrie Lorig for her ability to create work so raw and sincere that it feels a little religious (in the best way) to read. And Johannes Göransson for completely disrupting the way I thought a poem should (or could) speak, for expanding my notion of voice into something beyond the lyric “I”—beyond human, really.
