In Ariana Benson’s Black Pastoral, Nature and History of the South Meet

University of Georgia Press

April is National Poetry Month, a time to celebrate an often over-looked art. Ariana Benson is a poet based in St. Louis, Missouri, whose collection of poetry, Black Pastoral, was published by the University of Georgia Press last September. She sat down with WUGA’s Martin Matheny to discuss her work.

Martin Matheny is WUGA's Program Director and a host and producer of our local news program 'Athens News Matters.' He started at WUGA in 2012 as a part-time classical music host and still hosts WUGA's longest-running local program 'Night Music' which is heard on WUGA and GPB Classical. He lives in Normaltown with his wife, Shaye and dog, Murphy.
