Episode 11: Language
Episode 11: Language

T. S. Eliot’s poem “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock” is all about the failure of language — when we can’t say what we mean, when we don’t mean what we say, when others misunderstand us, and so on. In this episode, co-hosts Chris Pankiewicz and Cameron Pike consider the whats, whens, and hows of language. Charles King-Hagen reads “Down from the Mountain” from our 2015 issue, and we hear William Butler Yeats’ poem “Politics.” Our traveling co-host Cameron Price takes a fake hot air balloon to University of Nebraska-Omaha to share information about its MFA program.
