Epic Voices: Charles Olson’s The Maximus Poems with Steven Alvarez
Apr 30, 2019 | 7:00 pm
Poet and scholar Steven Alvarez examines Olson’s epic The Maximus Poems as a transnational poetic project that dismantles the walls of a U.S.-centered America, exploring the poet’s experiences in the Yucatán deciphering Mayan scripts and his awakening to the subordinated Amerindian epics of Mesoamerica.
Presented as part of the Emerging Poets Fellowship public lecture series, with support from the Jerome Foundation.
Admission $10, $7 for students and seniors, free to Poets House members
