Between “Soft” and “Hard” Clocks: A Meditation on Temporality: 30th Anniversary with Erica Hunt

30th Anniversary Close Readings

Apr 14, 2018 | 3:00 pm

Erica Hunt

Poet, essayist, and teacher Erica Hunt considers five poems and how they frame time: tense, tempo, slippage, archive, and prophecy. Author of several books of poetry, including Time Slips Right Before the Eyes, Local History, ARCADE and Piece Logic, she is also co-editor of Letters to the Future: Radical Writing by Black Women with Dawn Lundy Martin. She is the Parsons Family University Professor of Creative Writing at Long Island University, Brooklyn campus.
