Past & Present
In our Past & Present sessions, contemporary speakers give a personal response to favourite past poets writing in English or other languages. Brother Anthony of the Taizé ecumenical order has lived in Korea since 1980, and is an acclaimed translator from Korean. For this Past & Present session, he will introduce some of the poets featured in a recent anthology of twentieth century Korean poetry, The Colors of Dawn, of which he is the editor. He'll be speaking alongside poet Miriam Nash, who will be discussing Gwendolyn Brooks. The first black author to win the Pulitzer Prize, Gwendolyn Brooks garnered critical attention with her debut collection in 1945. Her work grew increasingly political over the course of the civil rights movement.
