A dynamic concatenation of lyric and philosophical thought rendered in poetry and prose.
Poet and scholar Susan Gevirtz’s new book Coming Events (Collected Writings) undertakes the search for what she calls a “third apprehension,” via questions concerning childhood learning; the vexed subject of discursive writing; film as writing’s cousin; becoming “a voyeur of translation”; and a woman writer among women writers, who offer support, dialogue, and challenge. In this remarkable hybrid work, Gevirtz steps outside formal constraints to interrogate structures of making and meaning in the conduct of the writer in writing.
