CELAN SALON with JOANNA KLINK
WEDNESDAY, MAY 22 / 5:30 - 7:30 PM /LITERARY ARTS
Joanna Klink, 2013 Tin House Writer-in-Residence at PSU, will lead the salon with a talk about hermeticism in the poems of Paul Celan. Klink's book project, Strangeness, is a lyric meditation on Celan's poetry, poetry that his critics called obscure, and an exploration of the strangeness of poetry in general. She will be joined on the panel by Lisa Steinman and Katja Garloff from Reed College and John Beer from PSU. The discussion will focus on three poems, which you can download here. Audience participation in the discussion is encouraged. Literary Arts, 825 SW Washington Street, Portland, OR
