Recorded At: Recorded On: Thursday, February 21, 2019

Acclaimed for her own hybrid lyric-narrative long poems  that explore wide-ranging experience, from working-class America to  sex and love, poet Dorianne Laux discusses two long, discursive poems—by Deborah Digges and Larry Levis—examining how the personal “I” is used to disclose much and yet retain a sense of mystery. Welcome by Poets House Board Member David Grubin, introduction by Poets House Program Director Paolo Javier.
