Modern Poetry Series
American feminist poet, essayist and critic, Katha Pollitt will read poems from her most recent collection, The Mind-Body Problem (2009). Stirred by conflict and juxtaposition, by the contrast (but also the connection) between logic and feeling, between the real and the transcendent, between our outer and inner selves Pollitt takes the ordinary events of life  her own and others  and turns them into brilliant, poignant, and often funny poems that are full of surprises and originality. The reading will frame a conversation about poetry and freedom as we explore writing as a tool for emancipation, both personal and political.
