Jacqueline Saphra on form and revolution

Suppose we were to take full ownership of the palace of poetic tradition, move in and create our own wayward commune? Some say this happened long ago; that we already occupy that palace. Some say we are a house divided; some say we should burn the palace down and build a new one. But suppose we acknowledge, finally, that it is very fine, fitting and true that we share this evolving palace of delights with its many ghosts; that we enrich the present by choosing to engage in non-partisan and generous dialogue with the past, joyfully exploring, subverting, inventing and reinventing poetic form.

Jacqueline’s lecture will be streamed on this page and followed by a Zoom Q&A. Sign up when tickets go live to be sent the Zoom link in advance, or join via the link shared here at the end of the lecture. The lecture will include BSL interpretation.
