Part of Subversive Traditions: Poetry, Identity and Community
This season, Poets House presents a number of programs that investigate poetry’s potential for undermining the established order of the day, whether political, aesthetic or social. With samplings from the U.S. and abroad, we will explore how poetry diversely expresses opposition, forges new allegiances, galvanizes communities and re-imagines the self.
