The Cascadia Poetics Lab is proud to collaborate with the Philosophy Department of Seattle University, Open Books: A Poem Emporium, WESTAF and Poets & Writers to present poet, translator and anthologist Pierre Joris for a reading, a book signing and a special reception for Founding Supporters of the Cascadia Poetics Lab. Pierre will be in Seattle, Vancouver and Victoria, BC, talking about his Paul Celan translation project and his new book:
Always the Many, Never the One: Conversations In-between, with Florent Toniello. “Always the Many, Never the One builds upon the initial interview by Florent Toniello that took place that day to go deeper into a major Luxembourg-American poet’s reflections on literature, philosophy, and life. Throughout this book Joris develops a core concept of his thinking and writing, “in-betweenness,” using both literary examples and life anecdotes, some never shared in Joris’s vast bibliography so far.”
