Poet Lisa Hiton explores the rules of eros in poets as ancient as Sappho and as recent as those featured in Queer Poem-a-Day.

In her craft talk/lecture on lyric poetry, poet and professor Lisa Hiton will delve into the world of queer desire--how lovers can find each other through disguise, restraint, anaphora, longing, and even in absence. This program will question the rules of eros in poets as ancient as Sappho and as recent as those featured in Queer Poem-a-Day. 

This program is part of our special podcast series Queer Poem-a-Day. Learn more at deerfieldlibrary.org/queerpoemaday.
