Views: 176

Carolyn Forché, editor of the anthology Poetry of Witness, reads poems from across her career and from her forthcoming collection, In the Lateness of the World. She writes “poetry of courage and passion that manages to be tender and achingly sensual and political at the same time,” wrote Margaret Atwood. Robin Robertson reads from his new book of poems, Sailing the Forest. “He is instantly recognizable as a poet of vivid authority, commanding a surprised, accurate language of his own,” wrote W. S. Merwin. “The evocative truth and the crystalline ring of his words, line by line, make a kind of hope in themselves.”
