Reflections on Voice and Responsibility in Poetry

You are invited a free one hour talk and Q&A session with renowned author Kwame Dawes, described as "one of the most important writers of his generation."

Art can give delight, can elevate us, can be affirming and sublime, but art can be damaging, dangerous, violent, and someone has to be accountable.

During the talk, Kwame will discuss the complex questions of voice, of self, of narration, of responsibility and of meaning in poetry. Essentially, when we take the “I” out of the equation, we gain certain freedom, but that same freedom is a dangerous thing, for it removes responsibility, and for Kwame, all art should contend with the pressures of accountability.
