An Interview with Nathaniel Perry, by Grant Clauser

Nathaniel Perry’s first book of poems, Nine Acres, won the 2011 APR/Honickman First Book prize, judged by Marie Howe. Nine Acres is written in meter and rhyme. Each poem is constructed of four stanzas in tetrameter—an approach not found in abundance in today’s poetry journals. Second, the poems are all from the point of view of a single speaker and take their titles from the chapters of a 1935 farming handbook by M.G. Kains called Five Acres and Independence.
