The Poetry of Lost Voices--NH Poetry Festival

  • The New Hampshire Institute of Art 148 Concord St Manchester, NH, 03104 United States (map)

Panelists:  January Gill O’Neil, Jennifer Jean, Kirun Kapur

What role can poetry play in recovering and preserving voices that have been swallowed by the past or made invisible in the present? Voices from history, voices from vulnerable populations—the forgotten, the abused, the enslaved, the neglected. How can we render them alive in our poetry and what are the ethical considerations in doing so? Who has the right to speak for those who can’t speak for themselves? What part should factual, secondary source material play? Where is the line between empathy and appropriation? Three poets read and discuss their process and practice.
