Theory & Poetry

16 September 2017: About fifteen poets and critics gather in Milan, in the welcoming space of the Libreria Claudiana, to discuss poetry and theory, outside of any pre-established scheme. "[...] it seemed useful and important to us to invite scholars of literature and poets themselves not so much to exhibit the speeches - theories - that should give reason for the texts, but to verify the conceptual tools - more or less coherent - that we use in approaching a poetic text, both in the phase of reading and interpretation and in that of writing and creation. The aim [...] was to strengthen the encounter with the text, also in terms of conflict, mismatch, gap between what is said to be the text, and what the text silently does".
