Poetry reading and poetics talk by Karen Solie

Karen Solie read from her work as well as shared her views of contemporary poetics. Her poems are X-rays of our delusions and mistaken perceptions, explorations of violence, bad luck, fate, creeping catastrophe, love, desire, and the eros of danger, constantly exposing the fragility of the basis of trust on which modern humanity relies. 117 more words
