& Lori A. May: The Poet and The Poet’s Speaker: Fact, Fiction, and Fantasy
The narrative voice in poetry, particularly the I narrator, conveys authority and intimacy—yet may not be a first person point of view. Discussion includes the pitfalls of presuming an I in poetry as autobiographical, and what devices and language a poet may use to clarify authorial role.

Lori A May is the author of six books, including The Write Crowd: Literary Citizenship & the Writing Life, published by Bloomsbury in December 2014. She writes fiction, poetry, and nonfiction, and you’ll find her work in publications such as The Atlantic,Writer’s Digest, and Midwestern Gothic. Canadian by birth, and a former resident of Detroit, Lori relocated to the Seattle area last year.
