Dennis Phillips & George Albon

March 20 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Free

Dennis Phillips and George Albon read from their latest works, Mappa Mundi and Lyric Multiples.

About Mappa Mundi

Like the medieval maps from which MAPPA MUNDI takes its title, Dennis Phillips’ 16th volume of poetry is a survey of territory as subjective as it is tangible. Riffing off the unstable certainty of medieval world maps, MAPPA MUNDI builds on, refracts, distills, distorts and reexamines Phillips’ past works and recurring themes, relying on, among other techniques, repeated motifs, narrative tensions and lyrical condensations. Its three parts charting the key elements of city, desert and islands, MAPPA MUNDI sets a predicate to be expanded in its sequel, The Cartographer’s Lament.

About Lyric Multiples

Lyric Multiples comprises four essays written over the last decade. The subject is poetry but the essays range over such topics as the evolution of the human call, ascensional modes of thinking, pop songs, the built environment and its discontents, the post-punk moment, its fruitful aftermath, and much else. Throughout this book, Albon explores unencountered varieties of aesthetic experience and the contributions they make to an ideal of social interconnectivity.
