In the Labyrinth: Pop Culture, Science, and Mythology in Poetry
Poetry of the natural world, the unknown universe; of love and the undoing of love; of identity and history. In Escape Velocity, Bonnie Arning tells the love story of a marriage and of loving oneself. Samiya Bashir explores quantum mechanics, race, and love in Field Theories. And Nicole Sealey’s debut collection, Ordinary Beast, ranges from the philosophical to emotional as she examines the natural world, race, sexuality, and more. With moderator Natalie Garyet of Tavern Books.
