“Alphabets of Creation: Libraries, Mysticism, Poetics”
a lecture by poet Peter Cole

How might archives give rise to art? Is obsession with the letter a threat to spirit? When does the lamp shed light on life, and when does it simply make learning stink? In a playful and probing presentation, MacArthur Award-winning poet and translator Peter Cole will explore the role of language, libraries, and mystical linkage in the process of poetic creation.
