Episode 129: Taneum Bambrick’s Bold Poetry

Taneum Bambrick

Taneum Bambrick’s book, Vantage, is a fictionalized account of the poet’s time spent working as the only woman on a garbage crew. Using unforgettable images, Bambrick tackles issues such as class, gender, and environmental degradation without sentimentality. Sharon Olds called the book “a work of art which also functions as a call, as if from under the ground, a cry from water and air.” Join a chat with Bambrick about the complexities of writing about gender and class and the craft of depicting violence, and hear the poet read several of the poems from her award-winning collection.
