Harlem Renaissance Revisited

Four poetic innovators explore representations of race, sexual identity and class in the revolutionary literature of the Harlem Renaissance poets—including Sterling Brown, Langston Hughes, Anne Spencer and Richard Bruce Nugent—and later generations of writers inspired by their work. Moderated by New York Public Library's Schomburg Center curator Steven J. Fullwood.

Branching Out Hartford: Susan Stewart on Anna Akhmatova

Anna Akhmatova, sometimes called 'the poet who buried Stalin' was a writer who pursued her work under extreme conditions of state oppression. She has come to represent the persistence of poetic conscience in the twentieth century. This lecture will look more closely at Akhmatova's poems, from her early love lyrics to her final masterpiece Poem Without a Hero, and we will listen to some recordings of Akhmatova's beautiful rhythmic recitations of her work.
