Dip Between Nature and Culture; A Poetry Book Talk
Tattered Cover welcomes poets Peter Filkins and Sidney Wade on Thursday April 8th at 5pm MT to discuss their new collections, Water / Music and Deep Gossip which can be purchased below.
Water / Music by Peter Filkins - CLICK HERE TO PURCHASE YOUR COPY
Exploring the space between nature and culture, the poems of Water / Music anchor themselves in the timely and the timeless. Rich and diverse in their formal intricacy, they move with ease from narrative to meditation, from close physical observation to the haunts of memory, and from lyric sorrow to the pleasure of living in the world. Water / Music embraces and celebrates life's mystery and the soul's repose amid "talismans at twilight, the whir of birds."
Peter Filkins is the Richard B. Fisher Professor of Literature and Creative Writing at Bard College at Simon's Rock and a visiting professor of literature at Bard College. He is the author of four other books of poems: What She Knew, After Homer, Augustine's Vision, and The View We're Granted, as well as numerous translations and a biography, H. G. Adler: A Life in Many Worlds.
Deep Gossip by Sidney Wade - CLICK HERE TO PURCHASE YOUR COPY
Throughout her seven critically acclaimed collections, Sidney Wade has established herself as a poet with a serious but light touch, capable of the clarity and inventiveness it takes to work a problem to both pleasure and resolution. Playing with and challenging form in all directions, the 27 new and 96 selected poems in Deep Gossip bristle with a sly wit that trips and delights the reader. Inspired by landscape, language, music, and living things, as well as the occasional bout of political outrage, Deep Gossip is a smart collection.
Registration includes access to this live stream event the night of the event, before it is posted on Tattered Cover's YouTube Channel, two days after.
