Visual or Performing Arts Presentation
In One Way Street, Walter Benjamin fabricates a dreamscape in which progenitors are rendered and act on behalf of the unconscious. In this presentation, Appell and Green interrogate the possibility of the hybrid poem accessing lineage intentionally rather than through passive reception, a lineage which neither Benjamin nor the lyric tradition can trace on their own. Green and Appell will read selections representing their respective approaches to hybridity in poetic lineage.
