Poetic Practice, Counter Culture and Conversation

Date
Thursday 5th May 2016
Description
The 1970s saw the emergence of a remarkable body of late-modernist poetry in London. For the first part of the decade, as Peter Barry has recounted in Poetry Wars, the Poetry Society provided a base for this activity. In CLASP, Professor Robert Hampson and Ken Edwards have curated an act of collective remembering of a decade of innovative poetic practices, showing its roots in the counter-culture of the 1960s. Who were these poets? How did poets find each other in a time before digital media? What were the other sites for this activity? To launch CLASP, Robert Hampson and Ken Edwards will be in conversation with Gary McKeone.
