From All That’s Gone: Hurricane Katrina’s Evacuees (Interview-poems and Images)

“A Quartet” Featuring Sally Cole, writer; Victoria Green, mother of four; James Davidson, artist; Catherine Loomis, professor.

Rebecca Ross and Cynthia Hogue are working on a large, multimedia project entitled All That’s Gone: A Katrina Elegy, from which the interview-poems and photographs included in “A Quartet” are excerpted. ‘ Our project offers insight into how environmental changes impact individuals, and how the human spirit falters and then rallies to confront suffering in an age characterized by forced migrations.’ Cynthia has published five collections of poetry, most recently The Incognito Body, and has co-edited Innovative Women Poets: An Anthology of Contemporary Poetry and Interviews. Her sixth and seventh collections, Or Consequence and All That’s Gone: A Katrina Elegy, are both forthcoming in 2010. She is the Maxine and Jonathan Marshall Chair in Modern and Contemporary Poetry at Arizona State University (USA).
