Poetry Parnassus - Free The World!: Zones of Conflict - Poets Caught in Global Crisis

An interactive session involving poetry readings, personal narratives and debate on the issues faced by poets caught in national and international conflicts, addressing the expectations placed on poets and writers to act as 'spokespeople' in times of crisis, and the tensions such expectations may create, the impact of wide scale trauma on the urge to write, the question of whether poetry can provide a suitable form of 'resistance', and the role of the poet in national reconciliation.

In partnership with PEN International.
