Saturday, February 1, 2014 - 6:00pm to 7:00pm

In this important companion volume to Forché’s classic 1993 Against Forgetting: Twentieth-Century Poetry of Witness, Forché, an award-winning poet and editor, has worked with Wu, a Georgetown professor and editor of Romanticism, to map out a literary tradition of protest and witness. These 300 works are testimonies to the strength of the human spirit to endure in the face of war, slavery, imprisonment, and other sufferings. (W.W. Norton)
