I interviewed Nate Mackey a second time on August 24, 2012, via Skype. The first two segments of that interview are summarized here. In segment three, our discussion of his latest book Nod House continues. I asked him specifically about a quote in the book from Max Muller about mythology, suggesting it is “the dark shadow language throws on thought.” He continued his thoughts about how the serial poem is an effort to find what light it can in that shadow & in one’s personal mythology.
