AMERICAN POETRY – AUDACIOUSNESS AND RISK
Thursday 31.5.18, 10-15.30pm, £30
In the post-war period some British poets looked across the Atlantic for poetry buzzing with confidence, audaciousness and innovation. We will consider a range of American voices, acknowledging the confessional poetry of Robert Lowell and the braggadocio of the Beats. Frank O’Hara and the New York School will be part of the equation as well as contemporary poets such as Billy Collins, Frederick Seidel, Sharon Olds and Claudia Rankine.
Location: St Lawrence Parish Room, Winchester, Colebrook Street SO23 9LH
