Peter Dale Scott - Walking on Darkness (Corte Madera)

In conversation with Sylvia Boorstein

Peter Dale Scott’s poems have been praised by Robert Hass, Thom Gunn, and Robert Pinsky; and in 2002 he won the Lannan Poetry Award. His eighth book of poems, Walking on Darkness, looks back on six decades of experiences as a confused student in Paris, a diplomat in Poland, Vienna and New York, a professor of English at UC Berkeley in the tumultuous sixties, and after retirement a tutor in Buddhist Thailand -- all of the poems in search of “this oxymoron/ the meaning of life".

Peter Dale Scott is a former Canadian diplomat and Professor Emeritus of English at the University of California, Berkeley. In addition to numerous volumes of poetry, including Coming to Jakarta: A Poem about Terror, his books include The American Deep State: Wall Street, Big Oil, and the Attack on U.S Democracy and Tilting Point.
