Autobiography of a Book with Lynn Emanuel
Nov 17, 2015 | 7:00 pm
Lynn Emanuel looks at the architecture of a book of poems, assessing its potential as a poetic form. Focusing on the structure of Langston Hughes Selected Poems, and other works by poets and novelists with whom she has had a lifelong obsession, Emanuel discusses why and how she puts this page next to that page and thinks about the book, rather than the poem, as a unit of meaning and expression. Discover the personal and artistic imperatives that inform this capacious poets work.
