The Poetry Of Memory

Venue: Blue Room, The Arts House

The way a poem moves in time and manipulates time makes it essentially a work of memory. The most memorable poems are often moments of discovery and recovery that restore fragments from the past, and arrange them into a meaningful pattern or tableau. This workshop focuses on poetry as an act of remembrance, explores the saving grace of memory, and looks at how poetry can revise the past so that it illuminates the present.
