Susan Howe and David Grubbs speak about the ideas that have nourished their collaboration as poet and musician.
This is an edited version of a seminar given by Susan Howe and David Grubbs on 7 October 2009 at Birkbeck College, the University of London. Illustrative recordings by John Cage have been cut from Grubbs’s presentation for copyright reasons. Also cut was the part of Howe’s presentation devoted to Emily Dickinson’s late manuscripts – this was a commentary on a series of slides projected during the event. The Q&A session that follows the presentations was chaired by Peter Middleton.
Presented jointly by the Poetics Research Group at Royal Holloway, University of London and Birkbeck Contemporary Poetics Research Centre. Supported by Birkbeck Institute for the Humanities, by the Humanities and Arts Research Centre, the Faculty of Arts and the English Department at Royal Holloway, University of London.
