Aditi Nagrath | Considering the Unfinished Poem
Virtual Artist Talk
Thursday, November 3, 2022
What does it mean to read a poem that has never been read before because it has never been completed? What does it mean to write a poem in order not to complete it, only to write it? Through readings of the author’s poetry and experimental poem-book, this talk explores the generative possibilities of the incomplete, examining the significance of unfinished and fragmented pieces as auto/biographical information.
