Perception as Seed of Poetry with Reed Bye
This talk will explore the intimate relation between perception and poetic expression. The view on perception will be grounded in Buddhist insights and informed by the teachings of Chögyam Trungpa, and the perspective on poetics will be illustrated by passages from The Volta Book of Poets, a recent anthology of contemporary North American poetry. The talk will focus on perception and inquisitiveness as the source of our basic impulse toward the poetic, and suggest ways of creatively engaging it.
