Victoria Chang Lecture at Bread Loaf

August 17 @ 11:00 am

Don’t miss this talk by Victoria Chang on August 17th, as part of the Bread Loaf Lecture Series!

A Belief in Angels: Joy in Poetry

“What is a poem of joy? Or a line of poetry that evokes joy? In this talk, we’ll think through what joy means, what a poem of joy might look like, and how a poem of joy might affect its readers. In the process, we’ll look at poems by various poets such as Frank O’Hara, Robert Hass, Li-Young Lee, Ross Gay, Elizabeth Bishop, and many others.”
