2019: Epic Voices: The Controlling Image: Digges & Levis with Dorianne Laux
Recorded At: Poets House Recorded On: Friday, February 22, 2019
Tagged: Epic Voices
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.
