In a telephone conversation and by email, Canadian poet Steven Ross Smith talks to Pierre Coupey about his recent work, its context and its connection to other artists – painters, poets and composers. 

Looking at art is like, "Here are the answers. What were the questions?" he once told me. "I think of it like espionage, 'walking the cat back' –– why did that happen, and that? –– until eventually you come to a point of irreducible mystery.
–– Peter Schjeldahl in conversation with Jarrett Earnest
