Other literary forms
In addition to his own poetry, David St. John has contributed to the translation of God’s Shadow: Prison Poems (1976), by the Iranian poet Reza Baraheni. In 1995, St. John recorded one of his own poems, Black Poppy. His essays and interviews are published in Where the Angels Come Toward Us: Selected Essays, Reviews, and Interviews (1995). This volume is valuable because it contains six important interviews with St. John spanning the years from 1976 to 1994, in which he talks of his own poetry extensively and explains his poetic principles.
