In this video, recorded at Poets Forum 2014 as part of the panel discussions on contemporary poetry, Joseph  Fasano, author of two collections of poems, discusses the influence the late poet Larry Levis has had on his work. "I think his great theme is banishment," Fasano says. "He has an image, he has a motif, he has an idea, and when it goes away it goes away, but it's always there in the background."
