Literary Partners Program: Arte de Pajaros: Art of Birds - Poetry of Pablo Neruda

Pablo Neruda (1904-1973), the Nobel Prize–winning Chilean poet, has been called "the greatest poet of the 20th century in any language.” Nature is prominent in Neruda’s poetry, and Art of Birds (1966) celebrates the special beauty of the birds of his native land. At the same time, the poems reflect a broad range of mood and feeling through themes of migration, exile, solitude, nature’s cycle of birth/death/rebirth.

Literary Partners Program: Power Dynamics in Poetry: A Conversation with Kaveh Akbar & Rachel Zucker

Join award-winning poets and educators, Rachel Zucker and Kaveh Akbar in an exploration of the perils and responsibilities of writing about violence and oppression as it is experienced by others. Kaveh Akbar’s poem, “Heritage,” about a young Iranian woman hanged in 2014 for killing her attempted rapist, serves as a starting point for the poets to unpack what one goes through in telling a sacred story, particularly when the subject is powerless in relation to the poet, and the world.
