Forrest Gander - Be With — at Politics and Prose at Union Market

Upcoming Event
Friday, July 19, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Awarded the 2019 Pulitzer Prize in Poetry, Gander’s collection is a powerful look at grief, displacement, and dementia. In uncompromising poems that scrutinize both individual moments and larger legacies—“you who were given a life, what did you make of it?”—Gander, a prolific poet, essayist, and translator, takes language itself to the breaking point. Countering loss with a series of fragmented long poems, Gander challenges notions of solace with a version of a work by St. John of the Cross, defies boundaries with narratives written in English and Spanish, and mourns his late wife, fellow poet C. D. Wright, with a set of raw, angry, and beautiful lyrics.
