David M. Carroll will present a continuation of last year's reading and discussion of poems and prose-poems written in English and the four languages he pursues: Spanish; Italian; German; and Russian. These brief works are experimental in nature; and foreign language pieces will be followed by English translations.
He will discuss his process, a blend of creative writing and language-learning. He will talk about some of his favorite poets from various cultures and periods, and the valuable role that dual language editions of poetry can play in one's learning a foreign language.
Discussion, comments, and questions from the audience will be most welcome.
