We will work primarily on Anne's last books: Gossamurmur and Manatee/Humanity. And will also concentrate on some of her essays contained in Vow to Poetry.
We will of course discuss a broad range of topics from criticism, pedagogy, poetic institutions such as Naropa, which Anne founded with Allen Ginsberg and others. And of course, matters of poeticity as well as literary history (her crucial position in the poetic field) will be central.
On the occasion of the publication of her book Archives, pour un monde menacé, translated by Vincent Broqua (collection américaine, joca seria, May 2014), Anne Waldman will give a reading at the Maison de la Poésie de Paris on May 12 at 8pm, with Patrick Beurard-Valdoye.
