Gioia speaks about his dual careers in poetry and business; his use of everyday middle-class life as subject matter for poetry, whom he sees as his audience; his musical training and love of music; his attitude towards rhyme, meter and form in poetry; the audience's role in completing a poem; textual and emotional difficulties in interpreting poetry; and his libretto for the opera Nosferatu, based on the film by F.W. Murnau. The composers of the settings speak about why and how they chose to set particular poems.
