Words of War, Words of Loss with Robyn Creswell & Dunya Mikhail

Poets House @ National September 11 Memorial & Museum

Oct 13, 2015 | 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Robyn Creswell

Poetry is central to Arabic cultural expression. Contemporary Arabic poetry reflects the whirl of events sweeping across the Middle East — mourning tragedy, criticizing societal expectations, and engaging fierce political discourse. Robyn Creswell, scholar of the poetry and intellectual history of the Middle East, and Iraqi poet Dunya Mikhail, recipient of the United Nations Human Rights Award for Freedom of Writing, discuss poetry as a way to understand contemporary Arab society.
