Thursday 25 March, 6 – 7pm
Join us for a friendly discussion of two poems by the American poet Muriel Rukeyser (1913-1980).
We will be discussing her poems ‘Poem (I lived in the first century of world wars)’ and ‘The Speed of Darkness’. Please note that ‘The Speed of Darkness’ contains strong language. We will also discuss the short essay ‘Muriel Rukeyser, Mother of Everyone’ by Sam Huber to contextualise Rukeyser’s work within feminism, politics, and ‘documentary’ poetics.
