Poet and novelist Robert Morgan asserts that poetry is more self-expressive than the imaginative endeavor of writing novels. He discusses how he writes the “voice” of characters with a different gender and background than his own. He also reads aloud the poem “Working in the Rain” and from his novel Gap Creek, which was selected for the Oprah book club.
